    When the tentacles arent out, I just hold it in there give it a little nudge, and then the brain slowly closes on it. and the tentacles come out and grab on to hold it in place. and its gone in a few minutes

    Right before I fed my little dude the other day

    Pretty sure his red/pink rim doubled in size after.

    Yeah, I just use some plastic tweezers I have, Hold the silverside near the mouth, very gently nudge the mouth and it closes on it. That is my coral that ate one of my ceriths :(

    I have an open brain and it looks crappy sometimes and then is fine in a day.

    What are you feeding it? I feed mine raw table shrimp and it really enjoys it. Light alone will not feed that coral.

    You guys had absolutely NO FUN with this thread at all.

    PC publishes a thread titled "I think my brain is dead". The first thing I thought was "I already knew that. You are just figuring it out?" ;D

    or we could have gone in the "so, too much to drink last night" direction. ;D

    or we could have said, "My wife says that about me all the time too." ;D

    There are SO MANY opportunities here. Let's not go all business here.
