    Default Baby dendrophyllia!

    So after well over a year (may be closer to two) my dendro finally popped out a baby! I believe the key has been increased feeding. I used to feed it 1-3 times a week (some weeks not at all). For the last few months I've been giving it food most days. I feed it hikari mysis (5-15 per feeding), Nutramar Ova (a good squirt from my feeding pipette or spectrum pellets.

    I think there may even be another polyp forming on the opposite side!

    Thanks for looking,
    Tom

    Congratulations, Tom! Looks like you figured that Dendro out. I just got an Alveopora I know will be a similar challenge and hope to match your success. See you tonight!

    Hopefully your success will be faster! Please post up some pics of your new coral. I've always been intrigued by Alveopora.

    Unfortunately I'll be out of town this evening so I won't be attending any pre-swap events. But I'm really looking forward to tomorrow!
