Bubble Coral Craziness
So, I purchased a bubble coral a few days ago. He didn't seem to come back to the condition he was in when I viewed him at the store. I moved him to an area of lower flow, and he came out a bit more. So I dropped a few pieces of silverside in tonight. After every cerith snail in there popped up out of the sand, zombie style, and the peppermint shrimp came tearing at them...2 pieces landed on the bubble. I've never seen him so big. He's completely expanded to what must be full size, tentacles moving around, and it completely devoured the 2 pieces. They were decent chunks too. So I think he'll be doing better now that he's eaten, and the shrimp and snails are happy. But it was seriously the craziest mad dash I have ever seen. I had to share.
