I have a planet and shortcake acro that have been going through a very slow stn. Its been three to four months since I got them. I dipped them in iodine and rx when I got them and did another rx dip about two months in with no success. If someone thinks they can save them, they can have them.

You can frag the portion(s) above the RTN line and they have a better chance of "rebudding". Do you know what your water parameters are?

I’d rather just give them away. I have one acropora that is encrusting and doing well. I try to keep my alk around 9dkh, calcium 440, magnesium 1500, nitrates 5ppm, and phosphates 0.03 and 0.1. I had an alk swing that I over reacted to and affected my montipora more than the acropora. I think it is a lighting Issue as the stn started after I moved them off my frag rack. My ai prime doesn’t cover my tank well enough, causing some serious shading. The one acropora doing well is in the “hot spot” of the prime. The stn is on the shaded spot, making it hard to frag these tiny 1.5” frags.

Would you be shocked by today's reefing hobby if you had just returned after a long period of time?
