These will extend more right??? I ordered these off of petsolutions but have yet to see the long tentacles coming out? They do right or i am completely confused? They have been in the tank for 3 days.

 

Did they send me just star polyps??? Kinda worried if you cant tell :o

 

Heres an up close shot

Looks like happy GSP to me.

 

That's about what you'll see.

 

I thought the tentacle's come out farther

 

Heres a pic off of google what i was hoping for

Mine stretch out like that pic. At first they looked like yours, added more direct flow to them and they started to expand. See in the google pic how the are being pushed by strong current, your plyps are sticking straight up. I think they need the higher flow to help keep detrius and nuisance algae off their purple matting. IMO try adding more flow, see how that goes..Hope it helps :)

In my experience, I get the best extension from the gsp in my pico which has the lowest flow and the lowest light BUT it is the most established colony- just over a year old now. So, I'm guessing that though the extra flow may help, the best help will be time.

just ordered the korilia nano 450 and the maxi jet 1200!!!

Nice. I have the Korilia nano240gph and a maxijit 1200 in my nanocube12 dx. I think you'll be fine
