no that is a good thing ,like pruning a plant,one break ,two or more tips will form :)
Maybe not for this one. It has been receding from the base since I got it...ohh...6 months ago? It grows and the polyps extend and it’s got decent color...but it’s receding. I wouldn’t be surprised if it kicked the bucket after the injury :( You can see it in the background of this pic

what is your cal,alk,and ph? remember ph check at same time of day when you check :)
I’ve never checked ph...don’t have a kit either ;Sorry
It’s been a couple weeks since last testing but they were 380 and 8. Phos was .13 and nitrates were still verrry near 0. I’m beginning to wonder if my brand new nitrate kit is bad. It’s Red Sea and doesn’t expire for over 2 years. I’m getting a Hannah checker at the end of the month I think. Hopefully that will give me a number instead of reading shades of pink

Yesterday I noticed my egg crate top was not sitting flush where it was supposed to be; I just thought I forgot to put it on properly. I also had a section of sand that was blown away from the glass AND the flasher wrasse had a mouth wound. Looking back, I guess he tried to jump the night before also & this time he was successful. I’m 100% putting blame on the fairy wrasse since he constantly harassed the flasher. Is it going to do this to all fish? I have a 1.5” hippo tang in observation currently and still want a sand dwelling wrasse or two, a mandarin and would like a male starry blenny if I can find one.
