First post here and a pic of my first coral. Candy cane, sitting about 20 inches below my ai prime in a 10gal nano. Placement ok? And what's that protruding from the center? Feeding tube? Newbie at this.

Sorry for the bad photo. Still trying to figure out what works best using my Samsung S7 Edge

 Thanks!!

Welcome to Nano-Reef.com.

 

That's a little strange.  It has feeding tentacles, so that's not a typical feeding response that I've seen.  It's just very inflated for some reason.  I don't think it's necessarily bad or good.  Nice looking candy cane.  Very appropriate for this time of year.

Welcome to the community @Ronnyeicher! That's a pretty good shot from your phone I'd say! That is indeed the candy cane coral's mouth. Have you seen any feeder tentacles come out from around it?

Thanks all for the welcome! It’s been fun relearning the hobby after 17 years gone. @Christopher Marks Think I saw the tentacles for the first time the other day. See pic. My iPad seems to take better pics in conjunction with the Aquarium App.

Wow 17 years away! That's exactly how long as this community has been online! Everyone is pretty spoiled these days by comparison. LEDs, programmable pumps, remote controlled everything, digital testing, hell even digital cameras! :lol: 

 

Your candy cane coral looks pretty content there, the feeder tentacles are a good sign of that. Great shot from your iPad! Color balance is the hardest part with the predominantly blue lighting, it tends to overwhelm a lot of cameras. That app makes pretty easy work of correcting it!

welcome to the forum. 

 

I have never had much luck with candy canes until I put them on my sand bed. so Id say you have good placement there.

 

Good luck and welcome back to the hobby
