They will grow faster when fed but they certainly won't die without having food crammed down their throat. Plus, a healthy, mature tank will support large numbers of microfauna that the coral will catch and eat at night when they are normally in feeding mode and you are asleep.

That one is definitely bleached. I'd focus more on water quality and proper lighting and placement than "feeding" to help it recover from the stress. It'll take some time, probably months, but it's not impossible.

insert clever saying here.

Current Tank Info: 200 gallon custom Marineland DD peninsular tank. LPS dominated mixed reef. Previous 90 gallon mixed reef TOTM April 2009.
