Lighting won't do anything for that coral, as far as I know. Carnation corals need nutrient rich water to be happy, and phytoplankton isn't going to be enough in this case. Perhaps DT's Golden Pearls, some cyclop-eeze, Roti-Rich, etc... plankton-size food.

I recently came across a very pretty one at a LFS near me, and seriously thought about bringing it home as I have a suncoral tank that gets food daily, but resisted the urge.

That coral would do better hanging upside down, as it tends to grow off the side of reef walls and inverted along caves and alcoves.
