Time lapse of green trumpet LPS eating dinner

Not the greatest quality.... just a quick set-up of my metallic green trumpet eatng some dinner. The pumps were shut off, so all the movement is the coral itself. This is about an hour's worth of digestion.

That's cool! I know they're really slow eaters, but have never seen a time lapse of it.
