    Looking good .That suncoral needs something more to eat though. And what happened to the gorgeous bubble coral you had?

    Hey Richard, I've been feeding the sun coral cyclops. I feed it with a turkey bastor. What else could I feed it. I've moved it to place with less light as well

    I'm feeding mine artemia at the moment because that's what I have, but most people seem to say mysis is the best food. More important than less light, IMO, is high flow. You want it to be somewhere where the flow blows off any detritus that might want to settle between the polyps.

    Thanks PsyXe. I'll get them into more flow. Will get some Artemia as well. Hope they come out. Now only see them at around 50%

    I feed Lobster eggs micro plankton invert food krill rotifers brine shrimp(ocean nutrition) all mixed together , you have to cover it with a soda bottle whilst feeding him dont worry about light keep him on the sand(bottom) where it is easy for you to feed. As often as you can but at least every 2 days. Hope this helps.

    I'm sure it will. I don't do anything special. Just try and keep my Temps and salinity stable as possible.
