I think you'll be fine in the 200 par range. might want to give it a few weeks and see how it goes. every coral is different and lighting is different for each tank so its hard to say how a coral with do with just par numbers, everything else plays a factor on PE and colors.

Would take the par higher but would start low on the tank and work your way up. Wild colonies are going to change colors drastically. They can be hidden gems.

Granted we have a lot of light in our tank, but we start all our sps on the bottom, give 5em at least a week to get acclimated and then move them accordingly. Wild caught is going to be even more sensitive so I would be patient with it.

i have mine at the top of my par but didnt start there, i agree with the chain gang here start it low and move up slowly over weeks or even months all depending on how much light you have good luck
