Default just bought a small colony of orange fathead dandro's

and feed them everyday mysid shrimp for 2 day's

was wondering about the really small baby polyp's they seem to grab the mysid but I am unaware if they can consume them?

can they eat part of the mysid even thou the mysid is bigger then the tiny polyp's?

are blood worm's worth the effort mixing with mysid or should I stick to mysid alone?

just get some frozen cyclopeze in a turkey baster and squirt them on the polyps.

so is the cyclopeeze for the small ones and mysid for the big ones?

or just mix it up?

I also have this coral to feed



along with hoping the extra will go to my firegoby will a firegoby eat frozen cyclopeeze?

is freeze dried a waste when/if adding to the frozen mysid/cyclopeeze when feeding these two coral's?

will the firegoby accept freeze dried cyclopeeze?

Just mix it up and spot feed the whole colony.

I'm no expert but I think you really need to feed those gorgs alooot more than you are.

The large and small ones will both eat frozen cyclopeeze. i'd also feed the larger ones frozen mysis as well.

All your small fish will eat the frozen cyclopeeze. Both my firefish do.

If you're feeding frozen i wouldn't even bother with the freeze dried stuff.

I also feed mine small pellets on occasion.

For that gorgonian you could try the frozen cyclopeeze and see if it takes it. But I'd go out and buy some oyster feast as well to feed it.

thanks I'll differently hunt down some oysterfeast and frozen cyclopeeze

I tried blood worm's but they would only grab onto them for day's inwhich the mysid they would digest within 1 hour

if the gorgonian eats the mysis it'll probably eat the cyclopeeze as it's much smaller in size.

the spiral coral pic I pulled from the internet ( not my pic) I just got him 3 week's ago

AKA black coral (Cirrhipathes spiralis)

http://www.coralscience.org/main/com...d-reproduction

http://www.cherrycorals.com/product....9&bestseller=Y

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_coral

http://www.mauidivers.com/Precious-Coral/Black-Coral/

http://www.marinelifephotography.com...tipatharia.htm



I have yellow and I'm looking for more types of black coral in red, orange, pink or green if anyone knows where to order from or has some?

seems to love the cyclopeeze the mysid they still digest but take 3 hour's to consume
