Nice new damsel! I like the look of those Springer damsels. Glad Tang is doing well, and everything seems to be going fine (ignoring the sea pansy..which sucks).

I added a sun coral, much like the one that I had before except bright orange and with a few more heads. It's really a pain in the ass and I think it hates me. It's supposed to be nocturnal and you have to squirt some teaser/flavored water at it and wait a while before it opens so you can feed it, which I learned how to do fairly quickly with my last one. But this one? No. I can squirt 10 times and all it does is become a little less withdrawn. After about 3 hours, the small ones will open up a little and stick a few sticky tentacles out, but to get them to hold on to any food is impossible. I know they can do it because I was trying to feed a piece of squid to the big one and I dropped it and it fell on the edge of one of the little ones. Thinking it would act like it normally does when I try to feed it, I thought the squid would fall off so I went to pick it back up but the little guy had a SUPER grasp on it! I was excited because he was eating, but annoyed because I have no idea why they wont take anything else from me. I usually have to sit there and hold food against it's mouth for a MINIMUM of 10 minutes before they will get a decent enough hold that it doesn't fall out or get moved by the TINY bit of pathetic current I have in that corner. And even then, the food is partly in its mouth but it's still closed up. It refuses to put out its tentacles. So maybe after it's gotten a decent meal it would put them out? Nope. It just sits there all "less withdrawn" and you can just barely see the tips of the tentacles.

This is the most I've ever had it come out and I've owned the thing for maybe 2 months? Maybe more? I cant remember


This is the end product of about 5 hours of work. The little one on the bottom is the one with a giant piece of squid that it wouldn't let go of (it tripled in size to eat that whole thing lol). The other two with food were not as willing and I had to stand there and hold the food forever. And that's after squirting juice and "baiting" them for about 2 hours

Have you tried smaller foods than squid? Like reef plankton or cyclopeeze? I feed the dendros at the store with those two, and they love it.

I have tried Cyclops, Marine Snow, brine shrimp, a high protein frozen cube dissolved in water, and now rods food. Rods food has krill and squid and oyster eggs and all sorts of things. It seems to do well and my Kenya tree loves catching the stuff floating around after I squirt it at the sun coral. Usually when I do get the chance to shove food in it's mouth, it's krill and they "accept it". Squid is the only thing I've seen them willingly take, but I only found one piece in the rod's food so far.
