    well i went to my lfs to pick up a large feather duster and guess what i found.... DENDROS GALORE!!!!

    so i bought a single polyp for 25 bucks. thats steep for me. especially for something the size of my thumb!

    it seems to already be sprouting a new head or two. ya ya pics will come. im still acclimating.

    so what do you dendro owners feed? ive got brine/mysis/krill/cyclopeeze also marine snow.

    sinsce i have one lonely head im hoping it will grow a few more pretty soon.

    i feed my frogspawn mysis about once a week. those need fed more cause they arent photosynthtic which im sure you know. so maybe three times a week. thats what i would do.

    Hey NU-2, I just bought one as well but mine has not opened up at all yet to that I CAN feed it. How long did it take to acclimate and open?

    Thanks and best of luck with yours!

    Lookin good! I feed my sun coral 2-3 times a week, I would assume dendros are the same roughly.

    +k! for a great looking coral :D.
