Aussie Doughnut Coral (Scolymia australis) Feeding

It’s very difficult to feed some of the LPS corals with their tank mates around so I built a little enclosure.  With all the flow the Vortech pumps put out I had to use something a bit more sturdy, or heavy so it didn’t get pulled/pushed over. So, I drilled small holes in a plastic container and added a piece of base rock for a little weight.

The Scoly is a slow eater so it gets most of the special treatment. I feed it a small piece of shrimp in the evening, cover it, then remove the cover in the morning to let the vultures in.

A short video of our Australian Doughnut Coral in the morning.  This is one of my favorite large polyp stony (LPS) corals.
