I purchased a glitter bomb at RAP NY and ever since i brought it home it has not really extended. I have tried to dip it in chemi clean and also in revive. No real good luck. It has also receded some. At times it does look like it may open, but no luck. Any pointers u guys can give me on what else to try. I have also tried different placement in tank.

Gonis are really temperamental and can take a long time to finally get back to normal in a tank. And from my experience, the glitter bombs are especially sensitive little guys.

Id just put it on a plug or small rock that you can easily move around and avoid glueing it down until you find a spot it likes.

Just make sure it isn’t getting pounded by too much flow for now and hopefully it’ll bounce back to normal quickly :)

Anytime a Goni starts to look bad I put it in shade. Like 50 par. They always come back. It can take months though. I’ve had it happen after fragging and coral warfare. I have 15 different Goni including glitter bomb. I think I one of the biggest mistakes people make is to much par. I’ve kept them successfully from 100-250 par but at 250 par it has to happen slowly. 100-150 par seems to be the best for color. Don’t give up on it.

If it was healthy at the show I feel like the dips are unnecessarily stressful to it. I have a glitter bomb that’s grown well for me (was a sub 1 inch frag). I just keep my tank as stable as I can, broadcast feed particulate food, and dose aminos in one large bolus every day (smaller doses spread throughout the day yields little result). But yeah, put it in a somewhat protected area, let it acclimate to lighting, moderate flow, and leave it alone. If you keep your tank stable it’ll come around hopefully.
