Moved thread.

They really don't need much more than clean water and decent lights. Most PC and T5 setups could handle them pretty easily. Every once in a while they open up and let little tentacles out in search of food.

Usually when I feed my fish they tend to catch food. Once a week I feed my fish mysis shrimp and add a little extra to the tank. Make sure you turn off all pumps for about 15 minutes.

Okay, so where can you get mysis shrimp? And can I buy the frozen type, melt it and put in some ro water? Or is there an easier way than that?

It is frozen in one of of those packages of cubes in my area. I thaw out one cube and use a paper towel to absorb as much as the water from it as possible then I add a little tank water to it. I only feed it once a week because most frozen foods are high in nitrates it is best if you can rinse it in RO water but I end up losing a lot of the food down the drain that way.

Most LPS that look like it (acans, brains, the like) will all open up with feeding tentacles if that's what you like.

But as stated above it's fairly easy to keep, I think low-medium light, same for flow

Do lps corals need high light. I have an odyssea t5. I guess I'm going to have to buy a different light but for now it will have to do. It's a 4 bulb 159watt

They don't need high light, most are medium light IMO
