Exclamation HELP W/ Open Brain Coral

Fed my open brain for the first time last night. Was told to try shrimp. Not sure if that was the best idea since its still in the brains mouth (10+ hours later)! Can anyone help me out with what to do?

Remove it. About an hour after lights out turn off your powerheads and give him a mysis to try to prompt it to eat. Might take a couple of days for it to adjust to this, but it will catch on.

To be honest I would not feed it at all. I have two brains in my tank and have never fed them. They get all they need from the lighting and water column. They are over 4 times their original size so I dont think they have suffered.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
