Accidental bycatch of a tricky coral!

My husband managed to hook a dendronephthya coral while out fishing. Picture isn't posting, but it is a lovely orange and red specimen, pretty much undamaged. Our permits allow us to keep it, so he brought it home.
It is currently in the sump. I have read that this is one of the trickiest to keep happy. We use water fresh from the Indian ocean, so do get enough plankton and micro particles to keep sponges happy - any words of wisdom on keeping this magnificent creature alive and well?

Vilas, If i remember correctly, You are not allowed to remove corals from SA waters? I could be totally wrong. I am going to redo my permits today so will check, but you dont want to be caught!

Good luck

Oh wow, cool. thank you for clearing that up.

I am further down in East London and i think our soft corals are more cold water species. pity. Good luck!
