My red Cynarina.

Seems to be a pretty easy coral to maintain. I feed it about once a week and it can eat a lot. Be very careful handling them. They can tear their tissue on their own very large skeletal ridges. Then algae grows on the exposed skeleton and the coral may have a difficult time regrowing that portion. When moving this coral I try to disturb it until it fully retracts and then handle it only from the base. I think they will be fine with most softies. Mine does well with a few mushrooms, zoanthids, and a very small toadstool leather. I also run carbon which may remove some of the secondary metabolites given off by some soft corals.

Serenity now!!!
