Yeah I was pretty amazed when I first see that. You can try feeding them when they do that and watch them grab it.

You don't need to feed snowflake polyps. They will spread fast on their own and you'll avoid adding unnecessary phosphates into your water column.

I was referring to feeding the candy cane you mentioned rather than the blue snowflake polyps. Even then I only target feed on occasions
