Sun polyps are non photosynthetic so it is recommended to target an extra feed or two during the week. Good water flow may prevent the need for extra feeds and feeding after the daylights are off will also help ensure enough nutrition makes it to all the polyps.
Beautiful coral aren't they?!?
I have a clam that looks like a rock. It came in with the LR
. I looked it up and ID
'd it to be a Turkeywing clam. I've had it for several years and it has never broken open, so it must still be alive. Muscles and scallops however are not known to have such lifespans. Usually lasting only for about 3 to 6 months at best. For such critters, it may be best not to take any special measures to cater to it. If it's strong enough and able to adapt, it'll stick around and feed on the natural nitrates the tank may produce. Though if it starts to break open with torn and/or rotten flesh, take it out.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.
The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
