Turbinaria Reniformis(ruffled ridge)?

Iv'e had my eye on a 6'' piece from a LFS. It's a beauty!
What care should I give it, if I do decide to buy. I have 4x39w T5s on a 24'' high tank. I want to buy it soon so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'd place it in the upper 1/3 of your aquascape in a spot with good water movement.

I've had the one in the far right for 2 1/2 years now, under a 250w 10k XM bulb with actinics. It has easily doubled in size in that time and seems to be doing well.

Yeah! You don't see too many,huh! I wander why they are not more popular. They are pretty hardy, right?

Here are some pics of my turbinaria corals, I was very interested to see a yellow turbinaria in the tank above - I've recently bought one and after I got it came across a thread on here suggesting that yellow cup corals are often dyed and that the colour of it will probably fade over a month or so. I was rather fed up at this as you can imagine, so I was very pleased to see a 2 year old yellow turbinaria in rhdoug's tank. Gives me some hope that mine might be a natural colour.
The yellow and blue turbinarias I've only had for 2 weeks. The scroll reniformis I've had for 4 months and it seems to be thriving. the only specific care requiremnet is apparently to flush it of detritus regularly although I haven't ever found that to be a problem so far. I have all them about half way up my tanks.

Here's what I bought as peltata, but reading Borneman, it's for sure a Turbinaria, I'm not willing to go to the species level now.

Well, isn't Peltata the only turbinaria that regularly has its polyps out in the daytime? That seems to be a pretty good way to differentiate that species at least. . .assuming I'm remembering correctly.
