Coral compatibility question
 
I can't remember the exact name of this coral I have - Gallaxia?? Has bright green points on it, and long sweeper tentacles that come out. Anyways, I just noticed that one of the tentacles was touching my purple montipora. Is that a problem? Should I move it?

Thanks

Yup. move it. Sweeper tentacles are meaning its hungry, and will kill any coral it comes in contact with.

Moved! Thanks much! Are they "always" hungry? Does that mean I should feed more? I feed once/twice a week with Coral frenzy and feed fish daily with brine, cyclops or flakes.

You could feed him a bit more, if those tentacles are out, he's looking for food.

Ok, I thought I posted this, but can't find it:roll: Anyways, I decided to glue the "tooth coral" to a rock, and I dropped it on the hard floor:frustrated: It's not open as much as before, but it might have a headache :lol:

The link doesn't say how hardy they are, but I hope I didn't hurt it:-(

Its an LPS, don't mess with them to much once they are placed. They are ok.
