Yeah Thats dendronepthya, very hard to keep long term, usually these starve to death in most reefs, needs constant feeding, Peter Wilkens method of success of keeping these corals was stirring the sand bed daily to suspend detritus and bacteria for feeding.

Phytoplankton and marine snow type supplements would be good additions as well.

This is a very hard coral to keep long term, unlike its cousin selcronepthya this one is best suited for NPS specified tanks as it is more prone to starvation over time.

Best of luck.
