favia not extending tentacles

Recommended Posts

I have had my green Favia for two weeks now and I have yet to see it put out any feeding tentacles. I haven't exactly offered it food, but my lobo used to extend all the time, even before I had fish and did not feed. I suppose I'll just get some food for it ( need advice on what exactly ) and see if it will nom it down. I should note I have no moonlight at the moment. I know some corals are stimulated to feed by moonlight.

turn pumps off, place food carefully on coral, leave it there for 15minutes.

 

You haven't had it long, still probably a little stressed.

 

mysis, cyclopeeze, brine, favia will eat ANYTHING, they're big eaters.

 

you should start to see it extend polyps at dusk/night time after you've had it a while. I suggest trying to feed it right before lights out.
