Do u mean open as its bottom completly against the rock then yes.. Or if the oval is open then yes too.. And how should I feed it bc at my lfs they said they never fed it.. But I put a piece of bloodworm cube and it latched on to it. And it went flat a couple of days but I heard that it does that when it digests food.. And what would be a better food to feed it and how long should I wait to between feedings..

You're SG is way too low. It needs to be at LEAST 1.025, that goes for majority of coral/livestock. My bta has beautiful color and is puffed usually at all times, its moving under a rock slowly. I think it is just exploring and possibly pooping.

As for feedings once or twice a week is a rule of thumb with corals in general. Overfeeding can really degrade the water quality and it will poop more than it should and grow/split very quickly which isn't as good as it sounds. It needs to grow healthy and strong with time not rushed.

Stop using the ph buffer and increase the flow inside the tank. Do a water change or two to even things out and it will be fine.
