Becareful dont over feed it. They can eat to much and the food will rot inside and cause it to die. Once every week or two is good it will catch some food on its own in between feedings plus its photosynthetic.
It all looks good!

here's a little update. this was just after a feeding so you may see some stuff still suspended in the water plus some of the corals are closed either due to feeding or them just being stupid for the time being. not pictured include my yellow tang, foxface, coral beauty, and some chromis'.
