I have over 10 heads so it takes quite some time. It's really cool though, kinda like feeding a nem. They actually take the food from my tweezers and engulf it. Today some of the polyps look very flat while some are huge and puffy. I'm learning as I go. LOL
Here is a pic of how I feed my Sun Coral...

Carey I have spent the last three evenings reading this entire thread, I have yet to dip my toe into the world of Salt water Aquariums, I am a freshwater tropical keeper (for the foreseeable future)... I really enjoy reading from the Marine side of things

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your experience
