if they are like the picture then you have some discasoma and zoanthids...both just require good lighting and proper water quality to prosper..most hermit crabs will be fine housed together with these corals.

I have added one small white and pink Feather Duster an also a Giant brown Feather Duster.

At the LFS the guys said that I would need to feed the Giant Feather Duster with brine shrimp 1 or 2 times a week.
I have tried doing this with a turkey baster with out success

I also know they filter-feed on phytoplankton
I have "Salifert coral food" but i don't wont to over dos my tank with this and also do not wont them to starve.
So I am looking for sum advise

PS I will post sum photos up soon of the new Addison's
