I've had this fat head Dendro colony for 2 yr. I spot feed once a week some frozen.

They don't grow at all.

Is there a dry food I can feed for these?
Thawing frozen often is pia.
Thankshttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170503/56fa0ab4c939d4cb4db9817813742fea.jpg

Isn't that the one you're selling? :lol:

Got to feed them chunks of thawed frozen. I've had them grow in size but not make baby polyps for a while and then lots of them.

How often to feed frozen? Wish I could feed them dry food often lol

They've been unchanged for two years, I'm selling them too

Do not feed dry food. If you want them to grow, feed with either fresh or frozen food, thawed to tank temp of course, 4-5 times a week.

Dude.. you have to feed them a minimum of 4 times a week! I feed mine mysis every day.

When I try to feed chunks of shrimp it always gets taken by a fish or shrimp. Am I just feeding too big of a piece?

Try cutting the bottom off a 2 liter bottle and use it to cover the dendro and then feed it through the bottle opening. Did that for mine when I was training mine to open during the day. Keeps things out and food in

I fill the turkey baster with mysis... squirt some at the fish and while they're distracted I feed my nps.

I spot feed mine mysis and broadcast feed Reef Nutrition ROE & Reef Chili. They seem to eat all of it.

I find the when I'm spot feeding, if I give the skunk cleaner shrimps a couple pieces each first, that it gives the dendros enough of a head start for them to down the mysis.

+1 on this. I feed the fish thawed frozen, and while they are busy I spot feed the dendros mysis or Larry's reef frenzy. Also maybe once a week I'll spot feed calanus mixed with a bit of Coral Delight to all the lps and dendros.
