Great corals but plan on spending some time with it.

I have a small frag of those. I sold the larger piece becuase there was only a small shaded area in my tank... under the over flow box. The small frag only had 3 polyps, we've been feeding them phyto daily and now we have 5 to 6 polyps after about 4 to 6 weeks.
Do you think I could get even better results if I feed them mysis shrimp?

This is not a great pic because the polyps are not out. The smaller growth on the right is all new. BTW I do not feed each polyp. Get a 2 liter bottle and cut the bottom out of it. Place it over the coral and put food in through the threaded hole. Stir it up every 5 minutes or so with a baster. I use (small) mysis and cyclopeeze. If I just place the bottle over it now it comes out because it knows what is coming. Make sure you clean the bottle good.

It's not the best pic but it started with the 3 larger polyps and now you can see 3 smaller ones next to it... there all closed up now, they normally don't open until the evening.

well it wouldn't let me attach the file, so I put it up over at my place
