Fat head Dendro colony not growing

I've had this fat head Dendro colony for 2 yr. I spot feed once a week some frozen.

They don't grow at all.

Is there a dry food I can feed for these?
Thawing frozen often is pia.
Thanks

Isn't that the one you're selling?

Got to feed them chunks of thawed frozen. I've had them grow in size but not make baby polyps for a while and then lots of them.

How often to feed frozen? Wish I could feed them dry food often lol

They've been unchanged for two years, I'm selling them too

Do not feed dry food. If you want them to grow, feed with either fresh or frozen food, thawed to tank temp of course, 4-5 times a week.
