Question Green Trumpet Coral Questions

Ihave two seperate single heads of Trumpet Corals. I have read that they are suppose to let out some tentacles when they feed. I have not noticed this happening to mine. I have had them for almost 2 months now. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Late at night when lights are out for awhile get up and they should be out.

Ok Daniel,

Sounds good. Now will they come out while I have my moonlight LEDs turned on for the night?

Mine do come out under moon lights a bit. But not near as much as when it's dark.

Mine don't come out until after it's been completely dark for a couple/few hours..... best time to check if they're out is about 5-6 am. Even the ambient light from the windows will cause mine to retract. My pink candy do the same, but will stay out a bit longer into the late morning.
