They probably get energy from the mother polyp. As they develop, they should grow tentacles and start creating energy for themselves. Just keep trying to feed them.

i just dont know if These are "runners that attach with him? or these are his baby polyp? you see if he the mother colony then they should get energy from the mother. but if these are runner that attach with him then. and if so then i maybe can just frag.how do they eat? or they dont eat? i know these are deep sea species so they dont feed from light. is anyone here that have one and have baby? but i see them split befor. HELP!!!!!!!!

I wouldn't frag them off until they are larger. You will increase survivability by waiting. I have not heard of any other Rhyzos budding in captivity.

They look like little euphyllia tentacles to me, try to get a better picture if you can. Not that I doubt they are baby Rhyzos; it will just help us to asses your situation.

Feed mysis, cyclopeeze.

Jen's pic above looks like the 'runners' are a hard hollow skeleton though. What I see in your pic looks more like a fleshy tentacle.
