I am curious if anyone has Sundays, and if so do u spot feed them? Mine just don't seem happy and thought maybe spot feeding them would help.

Auto correct again! Smile

I have a Duncan that has grown from one head to about 4 or 5. I don't directly feed it but I see it catch food when I feed the fish.

I target feed my duncans, they seem to really like it. Started with 2 heads under a month a ago and now the forth head is coming out. They have gotten huge too.

Not really sure if it is needed. IMO, I would feed them every now and then.

I started with 4 heads and it now has about 4 or so heads on each of those heads that are developing so maybe that's why they are not opening as much. Definitely not dieing off though.

Yea it's this iPad telling me what I wanna say. Lol

I used to spot feed mine. It started out as three heads and is now over twenty. When I was spot feeding it was growing so fast that new heads showed up on every possible millimeter of exposed skeleton. I stopped spot feeding and it's looking better.. the heads are actually starting to get a small gap between them.

How big do the heads grow? I saw the one in Jaiden's tank, which looked to be around 3-4 inches on the single head! At that rate in yours Matt, it would be pushing your GHM's out of the way.
I like the look of them, and I don't think Jaiden has an LED, which gives me even more hope for their suitability in my tank.

Mine are between 1/2 to 3/4 inch adult heads. Most of mine are smaller... it's a beautiful coral though

They grow like crazy when regularly spot fed. That's why I stopped stop feeding mine! They were going to get big way too fast! :-)
