I had a credit with Live aquaria and decided to try one of their dendro arbuscula... it came today... I squirted some frozen food juice and small pieces around it at feeding time, and then again when lights were almost out... no polyps opened but I noticed a few had shown a tentacle or two or at least began to open more than before...

Lights out about 20 minutes ago and I noticed that 5-6 heads were open wide..

What are my steps to get some daytime opening? Should I feed at night when open or continue to try and coax out during day? Thanks for the help

if they are arbuscula's then you won't need to do much to train them to open during the day. they generally respond to flow and food in the water column.

Well day 2 and only one of the smallest heads opened during day light... Lights off and several heads are open..
