    Hey everyone. I picked this up awhile back under the assumption that it is a chalice. I placed it on the bottom under my liverock cliff and it seems to be sprouting new mouths (orange spots). However I've never seen it eat and wanted to see if anyone knew what type of was and if they can be fed.

    My chalice only feeds at night, looks like this when I feed mode .. I will occasionally feed it LPS pellets and frozen reef food. [​IMG]

    Hmm, see mine never seems to expand tentacles like that. Even know when the lights have been out for awhile it looks the same.

    Looks to be a mycedium. Once acclimated it will throw out pretty large sweepers.

    I just started to feed my Lobo and acans the Fauna Marin LPS grow+color pellets and EVERYTHING in the tank shoes feeding response to them. I even dropped a few on the chalice today and even it opened/swelled up to feed up which it never does During the day. Even my leptoseris likes the pellets. [​IMG]
