These are not nocturnal corals. I have my black and orange branching sun coral under high light and high flow. I have "trained" them to open during the day. All you do is adjust the feeding time of your corals to day time.

Nice Coral
ranked 5.0 our of 5
This was a nice little guy to add to my reef. Trains pretty easily to open up during evening feeding with the fish. After 2 weeks already has newe polyps growing. Delicate specimen though, so watch handling it initialy as tissue damage is a bad thing.

I have no complaints about the product at all came with 25-35 heads. But I assumed and didn't research this particular coral before purchase. This is a nocturnal creature and must be hand fed at night. This isn't an easy coral. IT is a Beautiful specimen but only comes out at night. Hi Mark- You can train the sun coral to come out whenever you want it to - if you feed it nightly at 6pm- it will come out EVERY night at 6pm- and within just a few days - you can set your watch by its appearance - it is a remarkable creature!
