    Nice!
    I’ve been feeding my dendro nepthea a combination of Fauna Marin Sprint, with phyto feast and oyster feast.
    Cool seeing the feeding response in your video.

    How long have you had the Dendro?

    How long have you had the Dendro?

    These animals are super difficult to keep alive. Please let us know how it goes!

    Hi Chad!
    Yeah, I’ve read and seen how hard it is to keep these corals alive. I’ve had mine now for 4 months, which is not long, but I have been really happy with their feeding response.
    They are located in a high flow area, and right adjacent to the auto feeder. They get fed 4 times per day and so far they seem to respond really well (2 of them do at least, one has been struggling since day 1)

    What are your tips for success?

    Unfortunately, many of us don't know how to keep these guys long-term. Many people suspect that they need a consistent food source in the form of phytoplankton and other small particles (bacteria possibly?) The products you chose to feed from our line are the ones I would recommend.

    Keep us posted from time to time. We would also love to see a feeding demo!
