Feeding a pearl bubble coral

I have a pearl bubble coral. I think that is what it is called. It looks like my bubble coral, except her bubbles are pearl shaped.

Anyhooch - she has about 14 mouths that I have counted so far. I add liquid plankton to the tank every two days and every so often, I hand feed her some raw krill.

My question - do I have to feed all 14 mouths?? They all seem to appear connected - are they?

Thanks (the corals are doing much better now that I have finished dosing Myacin)

Todd

Unless the scleractinia is completely seperate then each mouth does not require feeding. The corals would be considered "colonial" and each part shares in the nutrition as one.

As the coral grows and possibley divides, then you should feed the seperate sections. To be safe for now I would suggest a small portion for each "end" and one in the middle just in case

Cheers
Steve
