My Brain Coral doesn't eat!!!

I bought a brain coral about 2 weeks ago, but I never seen the brain extended it's tentacles, my Galaxy (bought last week) is acting the same way. I try to put brine shrimp over the coral, but nothing work, my fish just takes it away. Can someone help? Is it where im placing the coral? Thks

Mine has not eaten in twelve years. I dont target feed my corals nor have I ever. They get all they need from the lighting and water column.

I didn't know brains had to "eat". I thought they just got what they needed from the calcium and lighting. Hm. I was thinking about getting one.

When you clean your glass you are actually feeding corals. Corals you do have to feed is things like duncan and suncorals. Every time I see this link I want a suncoral but know my tank can't handle the feedings Melevsreef.com - Suncoral
