    Try target feeding it with brine shrimp, mysis at night when the sweeper tentacles come out. Do this about twice a week

    Take a frozen (human food) prawn or shrimp, and grate in (whilst frozen) with a fine cheese grater (Afr. = rasper). Take a small portion of the grated shrimp/prawn, let it thaw properly for a few minutes in some tank water, and then drop this onto the coral. Do this at night, about 1 hour after the lights have gone off, and after the fish have gone to sleep. As Tony said, do this about twice per week.

    I find mine will take the smaller lancefish whole, but I have to put my DIY feeder over it otherwise the sneaking, theiving, dastardly skunks come and nick the chow.

    Forgot about that Mark. COver the coral with a 2 litre coke bottle that has been cut in half to keep the vultures at bay.
