    I am at my wits end, I bought a sun polyp coral last week and has already has turned green. I an target feeding 2x a day and still no little flowers develop they just seem to get deepre and deep in their polyps, some is in some help before it dies.

    Thanks Eileen:eek:

    Welcome to Masa. A picture of the coral in question would help us diagnose what is wrong and help solve your issue.

    yeah... please post a pic. That's weird that it turned green. That makes me wonder if it was dyed.

    Tagging.

    I also bought 1 on Tuesday, still no flowers. I placed mine on the sand, under a rock with mild flow.

    What's the ideal for these coral to be happy?

    Where should I place it?

    Light?

    Flow?

    I used to also have issues with sun corals. But since I have been feeding reef paste this is what they look like. Black suns the same.

    Cant comment on reef pearls. Never used it. Please post a pic of what reef pearls does for your sun coral and how long you have kept it. :thumbup: I am sure it is the amino that triggers the feeding response. Any amino trigger food should give positive feeding response limiting target feeding.
