Yellow Polyps

I just got a frag of these from my lfs. I was wondering what and how i should feed these. I have read that they like brine shrimp but you have to feed them to each polyp. They also like plankton i have read, where could i get this stuff.

No man is so foolish that he may sometimes give another good council, and no man so wise that he may not easily err if he takes no other councel than his own. He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master. --- Hunter S. Thompson

You dont really HAVE to feed, but they like cyclopeeze as do my zoos they mostly get their food by photosynthesis.

Don't get me wrong...I like yellow polyps, but they are an aquatic weed once they get started. I wouldn't bother feeding them. They will grow like crazy once they get established and they'll snag some food every time you feed the fish anyway. Don't let them get started on any rock that you don't want covered with them. I usually keep them on a separate rock to limit the spread some. If you do want to feed them, they will eat anything...even flakes.

I'll melt a cube of frozen brine shrimp on a paper towel & mix it with water from the tank in a coffee cup. Then I take a turkey baster (never used for anything else!) and spot feed once a week.
