Time of feeding will depend on the fish and when they are most active but for the most part feeding during the day is best

Also, I don't remember if I previously asked, but do I broadcast feed with the lights on or off. I feed the shrimp pellets every other night.
Ive never really seen them overrun a tank, it would be very hard to do so dont worry.

Also what are you broadcast feeding?

I have Mysis shrimp, enriched brine shrimp, and Cyclop-eeze. Oh, I also have Daphnia, but I don't use it much in the reef tank. I give that to my FW tanks.

Lfs will not take him back. I don't like this lfs, even though it's the closest SW to me. No warranties, no returns. Use them only in emergencies when I can't get across town for what I need. So, now what do I do? I don't know anyone with a SW tank.

Hermits are usually fine with corals. Many times it will appear they are picking at them but most often they are picking in between polyps or something thats on them.

Ok. It just worried me with how big he is, and how small the corals are. I will watch, though.

My shrimps are that way. Came home to a missing green star polyp. Had my husband turn on the lights and the hermit was where the polyp should be. I found it on the rubble at the bottom of the tank. It had been thoroughly glued down and was even growing. For tonight, I scraped off the glue and wedged in between two rocks. I also noted that one of a pair of purple ricordea attached to rock rubble from the Los is shriveling up, but the other looks fine. The only difference between the two is, on the side of the rubble, under the shriveled ricordea is something growing out of the side that I said looked like the business end of a round corn broom. A couple of days ago it was about 1/4 inch and now it's about 1/2 inch. Could this have anything to do with it. BTW, the hermit crawled away to a different rock. He might not have had anything to do with the star polyp, but I just don't like him!
