    and thats why I got rid of my galaxia. One of the most aggressive corals I have ever had. Mine would extend a single sweeper tentacle at night up to 6 inches and smoke the crap out of surrounding corals.

    Yeah.. Not sure if it feeds through that tube.. but like said above it's a feeler that it extends out to keep other corals from growing close to it. It will kill pretty much everything it touches.
    That doesn't look like the galaxea I had. Must be a different variety.

    Unfortunately, Galaxia is only one of the many species of LPS corals that utilize long sweepers. Pretty cool to see it, though. Beautiful shot too, Jeff. :)
