    Hey everyone, I have a Duncan that's been in my tank since last January and has grown from 2-3 heads to at least a dozen. The last couple weeks however it hasn't really opened up much. It's either been nearly completely closed or opened just enough to make out its arms. It's been in the same...

    I have stated in previous threads of mine that I think my duncan is growing a new head. I just target fed the guy and got this good pic of what might be the start of a new head. But i'm not sure. Can one of you more experience awesome people out there shed some light on what this is? I'm...

    My duncan is no longer feeding when I target feed. When I first got him 2 weeks ago I fed him once a day. He ate all the time. I have tried to target feed him for 3 days now and he won't grab any of the food. I have tried with tweezers and with a turkey baster blowing the food slowly so not to...

    Is this a Duncan in the midst of my GSPs? Did I get a nice hitch hiker?

    I am pretty sure that this is a Duncan but at the Petco were I purchased did not have the name posted. Chime it to confirm or deny my find.

    Is there a tell tale sign that a Duncan is happy other than just being open? The tips of mine are inflated really full bulb looking, I'm wondering if this is a good sign? I have never seen them inflated like this in pictures, they normally seem to be long thinner tentacles, so just wondering if...

    About two weeks ago I mistakenly used GE silicone in a new refugium, then my tank sprang leak, and in the meantime my hydrometer decided to be unfaithful leaving me with a salinity of 1.030. While all this was happening my water parameters stayed par. i transferred my living coral to a 10 gal...
