Hi there, I got this frag but I'm totally new to lps corals. I have 2 this war coral and an acan. My question is how do I know the war coral is happy and growing? The acan I see open and close and even eat (very cool). The war coral is a lot smaller, it's also positioned much higher in the tank) recommended positioning from supplier). Anyway I thought I'd ask. Hopefully both are doing well, they are my first hard corals so fingers crossed. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170731/589b9105d5ca8f1272ccbca202ee7841.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170731/296040aa1d1e83d6446294fddeabf105.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170731/2c479642a21d6951a25a10fdb1c5c932.jpg

You can also feed war corals, they will accept small foods ranging from prawn eggs, brine shrimp to even small mysis. Its feeding tentacles will come out of green the "polyp heads", if it is interested in what you are offering. It is generally easier to do this during the night, but most will also accept during the day if you are persistent.

You'll just have to pay close attention to the War coral and look for new growth. If it likes where it's at it should grow over that frag plug in no time. The colors should remain nice & bright and a healthy apatite is always a good sign too.
