I'll suggest to put your chaeto in sump, it'll casue power head clocking, as I can see it piles up to your power head.

also, damsels are territorial and agressive, will harass other fishes when they settle in the enviroments, when they get older, the meaner!

unless you don't add other about same size fish?
anyway, it's my 0.02.

That 'unknown' coral, looks like a bleaching (aka dying sun coral). They need to be target fed heavily to stay healthy and grow. What I would recommend doing, is find a container that is able to hold the rock comfortably, and also making sure that there is an inch of space everywhere around the rock. Then take a cube or frozen mysis shrimp, and defrost it first, and then stir it around the coral, allowing the polyps to catch some of the shrimps.

If this is indeed a sun coral (hard to tell for sure from the pics) it is certainly on its way out. You probably have a week, if you're lucky, maybe 2 left before its completely gone.

Thatnks for the input reefman i didnt know that you have to directly feed these. Although, it is actually regenerating. I got it in a batch oflive rock and it didnt have any polyps on it, then i put it in ma tank and it started to llok beautiful, actually is starting to get a hint of green between the the polyp's. It actually gets on or two polyps every week, espaecially the day after i dose limewater. so each individual polyp with tank a brine to eat???

The unknown coral looks more like a favia or favites to me. Feeding it while it's polyps are extended like that is a good idea, but I do not think it is a Tubastrea (Sun Coral).

So would brine shrimp be ideal for this coral. And how do i go about this? Turn off all current and take the dead shrimp and just set them on the open polyps.
