Those aren't sweepers, those are feeding tentacles. That guy is hungry! He doesn't need to be fed though, as they can get all they need from the water column and your lighting

How often do you feed and how often does he put out those tentacles?

He might be sensing the food in the water you're feeding to the sun and duncan, and he wants some as well


That makes me even more sure it's feeding tentacles
