i think have solved my monti problems.
for the last few months, verytime i add a frag of a monti, it would grow like crazy for a few weeks and then die from the middle and the edge would hold on for a while.
everytime, the same thing.
i have a pretty full reef, but only have one small monti frag left. same thing dying from the middle but still growing and colorful on the edges.
i flipped on the lights this morning and saw at least 6 nudis on the small frag.
i am thinking that i should just throw the frag away and go without montis for a couple months?
i have no other montis in the tank, and nothing else seems affected. is 6-8 weeks long enough without montis to starve them?
