    Thanks, yeah the price kind of took me back as well. Fairly new employees so I have to wonder if they priced things wrong.

    Thanks Jerry, that is what I was looking for Nutramar Ova, forgot the name. So I guess they can take pretty big pieces?

    Thanks Seano.

    Depends which coral. Some can eat pretty big pieces, some not so much. Your favia could probably put down medium sized pieces of PE mysis, but then wouldn't need to eat for a few days.

    Congrats its beautiful Cheryl, they will definitely grow faster with regular feeding or if kept in "dirty water".

    Lol, Vinny. That's because I scream at them "DO MY BIDDING!!!".

    I've learned two things along the way that really make a difference if an LPS isn't growing, happy or not eating.

    1. Dip it in Furan 2 to kill bacterial infection.

    2. Amphipods eat the new flesh of corals. Interceptor or the right mix of predators takes care of them.

    Since I have taken care of those two items, every LPS that I have is stupid happy. :p

    Actually I have 8 different types that are Favias, Favites, Platygyra and such. They are on the left side of the tank. The largest ones are similar to yours.
