I am coral sitting a ginormous pagoda cup coral that belongs to Bc_slc (Matt). Check out the pic... I'm going to cry once he gets up his 140gal tank. I realized that this guy chows down on some direct feeding of brine shrimp. Any other types of food that I should give him while I'm taking care of it?



Oh and in the left corner is a sweet purple and dark green zoo colony I got from Coral Beauty. I also got the pompom xenia at the bottom there as well.

Nice coral. Basically it will eat anything that can fit into a polyp. You could try hunks of shrimp, clam, squid etc. I have even had success feeding them sinking fish food pellets. They dont really float away and its east to place one in every polyp. Good luck, thats an awesome coral.

Must be that I'm on an Apple computer because I don't see the pic. That's really strange. Is it loaded as a jpeg?

I would just add. Dont let the extra food sit in the cup. Make sure there is enough flow to get rid of the extra or use a turkey baster.

Its a jpeg. I didnt want to be limited to the 100k file size limit in adding the picture. I'll fix it when I get back from work

hey john - I was asking....i normally can see jpegs, and that is one of the formats it has to be in to upload. I'm not very savvy on my computer, so I was curious. Don't change it if others can see it, I just am not sure why I can't.

BlennyBabe -
You said it's easy to put a food pellet in every polyp. Okay, being willing to try just about anything once, I ran right out to feed mine. I think mine has maybe 40 polyps, and I probably fed about half of them. Now, what I'd like to know is where do you get enough time to feed your cup coral?

By-the-way, very nice coral! I'd say I hope mine grows up like that some day, but right now it lives in a 30-hex. If it doubled in size I'd have to move it. lol.

Feeding all of the polyps on this guy must take about a year... You should ask jazznreef how he got this coral so large. Did he buy it or grow it from a frag?

This sucker is heavy too. I moved it a little bit last night and thought it was stuck. Just ended up being that I didnt think it was as heavy as it is...
