You technically don't need to feed anything but the gorgonian. I would use phytoplankton for that.

Thanks mr. X. The sea whip seemed to be disintegrating more and more each day. I'm going to buy that food this weekend hopefully I can save it. As long as I don't have to feed my other corals everything will be okay

That's a tentacle alright, but not a feeder. That is a sweeper tentacle, aka what it will sting other corals with.

It seemed to close up a little but still has several of those tentacles out. The only thing that's close is gsp. Should I move gsp?

I would. That tentacle can reach out 6 inches.

Gsp is pretty nasty stuff. It kills whatever it touches. I didn't see much that could defend against it. Are you sure those are sweeper tentacles coming out of the torch? Looks like maybe a shrimp molt and antennae sticking out from where I'm sitting.
If it is sweepers, then I would move one of them.

It's definitely not a molt. It's part of the torch. Not sure if it was good or bad or dying or sweeper tents. It just split recently so I don't think it's dying just closed up a little and saw maybe 4-5 of these thinner longer tentacles moving around with the flow.
