I know you said you get off work late, but wasn't sure what "late" is to you. Lol. Late means different things to different people. I don't consider midnight late, but that's cuz I work night shift.
Hope you get your sun coral to come out and eat, they're beautiful corals. Good luck!
Midnight is actually when I get off from work
So by the time I get home and get things ready I'm sure it will be at least 1am, if not later when I'll begin the feedings.
Last night I was actually off from work but didn't start feeding until at least 1am. It was completely dark in the tank and I left it as dark as I could in the room as well. I checked it every so often with a flashlight but never saw it even attempt to open up. From what I've been reading this evening, it seems its really starved and I'm sure getting used to a new environment doesn't help matters.
Thank you, they really are! I was so looking forward to my sun coral and here I get one in terrible shape. I really hope things will turn around for it. I'm definitely going to keep trying.
