GARF AQUACULTURE CORAL FEEDING

video page

You can float a small piece of the frozen food in the reef.

This is a Palythoa about 15 min. after we've fed them. This is after they start to close over the food. This picture shows you how they close up and it is really interesting to watch.
You can start to see the hermit crabs in the back. They will smell this food then they'll come over and actually try to steal the food away from the Palythoa, but the Palythoa are pretty good at closing up and getting the food down their stalks.
