Recently got a drag of this at RAP this year. Not sure how it’s doing as I’ve never seen sweeper tentacles out on this guy. Maybe someone can give me some info and help on how to properly care for this.

I have 2, one in my display tank and one in my frag tank. The one in the DT never shows its sweepers, the one in the frag tank has them out nearly 24-7. Both get fed on the same schedule. I think the one in the frag tank can sense a neighboring coral that it doesn't like so it tries to kill it but I keep it far from any other corals. The sweepers are at least 3 to 4 inches long.

What do you usually feed it and also how much

I feed my corals a mixture of reef roids, NLS pellets, Larry's Reef Frenzy, and oyster eggs. I turn off the pumps and use a Turkey baster and squirt some on the corals.
