    So my sun coral stays in during the day which I understand is how most are unless u train them to come out during feeding in the day. But I like to keep it natural but it seems like at night as soon as the dusk lighting goes out they start to come out but don't fully extend. I've only have had them for a week any ideas? I've put some brine on each head when they are halfway out but they don't ever come out fully

    well u could put them is a small container with ur water in it then u can feed it in the container so that the food dosnt lower ur water quality. just keep it in a dark space and stur ever 15 min until the grab the food

    They are still adjusting to your system.

    If you really want to see them come out, try using oyster eggs... EVERYTHING loves oyster eggs!
