feeding my Lobo

Evening all,
I have a nice Lobe with 8 heads the trouble is when i try to target feed it with mussell the fish and shrimps nick all the food, would stress the coral if i take it out of the tank in a container and feed it once a week. so it gets all the mussell.
Cheers

Is the coral doing well otherwise? Feeding it isn't a "must" I would not remove it to feed because it will close up and probably not extend feeder tentacles. Try target feeding after the lights go out.

I`ve had mine for several yrs and have never fed mine. It gets what it needs from the lighting and water column.

Feed your fish first and then target feed the lobo.

Feeding is just a bonus it'll do just as well without!

I think they look pretty good for not target feeding three yrs and 6 yrs.

How big is that rock that the lobo is on? If it's not to big you can cut the bottom off of a plastic bottle and then slip that over the lobo and then feed them through the top of the bottle. Then no fish can get to the food until the lobo is through eating.
