I'm into day 5 of my first nano tank, and i really love it :D.

With one of the rocks i found four Polyps. They look like Sun Polyps although they open up with daylight and close when the light goes out. I read that they normally open up when it's getting dark. So are these sun Polyps?.

They are about 0.4 inch high

My tank is still in cycle so do i need to feed them?.

If that is photosynthetic, then very cool!

Try turning up the saturation on your tank.

When I first started my tank and I bought my LR, I never got any hitchhikers like those. Actually, I didn't have many hitchhikers at all but a bristle worm and a few Fan worms that didn't last long. Interesting enough, those hitchhikers didn't show until a year after I got the LR...lol. My LR came from a LFS that told me it came from someone else's dismantled tank. Every time I get on here and see stuff like this I get envious...for the good reasons...lol.
