    Question Favia behavior?

    Hey All

    Just wondering if the behavior of my X-Mas Favia is in the normal range. She's growing wonderfully but it's been a very long time since I've seen any sweeper action and I haven't seen her open in a very long time. You be the judge if she looks healthy or not as I'm but a novice with them.

    Looks healthy, have you checked for feeders a couple hours after lights out? They are nocturnal feeders.

    Today I saw 2 and that's what prompted me to ask about it~reminded me that I rarely see them, and the fact that she never open up.

    I usually see my favias open when I first turn my lights on. I would turn lights off for about 10mins, feed some coral frenzy, and then use a flashlight to check for tentacles. From the pic it looks healthy.

    Funny you should mention this as I was just thinking the same thing the other day about mine. I very rarely see feeder anything from my X-Mas Favia. Now my other ones on the other hand are always hungry lol.
