    Doomed in your tank. Chrinoid. Best left in ocean where the ocean can supply its dietry needs.

    These are absolutely beautiful creatures that require sps type clean water and need to be fed zooplankton and phytoplankton 3 times a day. Such feeding causes poor water quality.

    With lights on, it should be closed like a ball and should only open at night. If yours is open during lights on, like your pic, then it is starving and looking for food.

    Good luck
