Hey guys,

i wanted to give you an update on this situation. Upon further observation, i think the individuals above are correct in that these pests are more opportunistic feeders than the cause of the STN. The holes i mentioned earlier look like they could be from fragging, exposing the inside skeletal structure of the stony corals. Maybe the retraction of polyps is due to heads splitting? In any case, i’ve observed an increase of population of these guys, crawling around the rocks. Ive also seen an explosion of coraline algae for the first time since the inception of this tank. I’ve read that this is a good indication of tank stability so im pretty happy and dont want to mess with the tank too much. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread and especially @Auto-pilot for their suggestion.

How are the euphyllia doing now? I’m going through the same thing but I believe it’s from my Dino’s
Polyp extension is No better, no worse. Definitely still worse than when i first purchased tho. Acans and GSP seem to be doing just fine.

Interesting same exact thing in my tank. Acans are as fluffy as ever if not more and actually growing decently too only things mad are euphyllia and two sps frags that are battling Dino’s badly.

Maybe the Dino’s are the cause and not those little bugs

Perhaps, ive been battling Large Cell Amphidinium for the better part of 8 months. Ive ended up siphoning out most of the substrate as they like to camp out there and never go into the water column. Its minimal now, but still present.

Do you think buying and selling coral is similar to playing the stock market?
