Feeding the filter feeders!
My black sun coral budded a new head! You can kinda see it between the two bigger ones, it’s having its first meal
I gave Arp live food for the first time and she was Confused
I took the molly fry out so I could clean the nursery, here they are getting some noms!
I’m really hoping I can get some with my male’s orange and blue Dalmatian pattern.
Slo-mo of Arp jumping!
Arp getting her first meal of blackworms! She’s an enthusiastic jumper!
Feeding the new Bird Nest coral!
Each individual polyp is its own animal, but can gather nutrients and information from others in the colony. If you look about 50 seconds into the video you can see where I accidentally irritated one polyp, and all the others flinch!
Feeding time! Also, Mario, the candy striped pistol shrimp, makes his first appearance on here! He and Yoshi are pared up in a goby/shrimp symbiotic relationship.
Mario and Yoshi have been gracing the internet for over a year now! I just realized that means they’ve been together for a year, too. Happy anniversary! <3
