Hard to believe you didn’t have luck with them. Seems they don’t care about flow light or nutrients in my tank. Other corals it effect even the Duncan’s but zoa’s rarely miss a beat.
they do semi ok in my new tank but past efforts have ended miserably.. years ago I loaded up one of my tanks with them and then sat back and watched them slowly melt away to nothing ;Facepalm

Before the big thaw.. lol

The time it takes for something’s to melt away is so hard watch.

The garden looks incredible such a shame it melted away.

Asterina’s decimate any zoa’s I add to my 110. They do okay in the Biocube though. At least Paly’s do.

Im about done with them.
Never thought about Asterina’s become a zoa’s problem.
All the fun stuff to look forward to dealing with.

Tomorrow I am planning to find time to test. PO4 has been slowly dropping. If it dropped lower I will adjust my fuge light but would rather not with the cold weather and house closed up. Still amazed on how well a fuge can help with PH stability.

Tried again to get a picture of the Lineatus but he doesn’t stay still and not a fan of having his picture taken.

Pintail looking little pale and stressed. he would get chased a little and now anyone who flinches by him he takes off. He was tuff and confident but slowly lost it.

Tried to get a picture with LN hawkfish and clownfish but The lag between pushing the button and getting the picture was to long.
Cool fish and only fish that will try and push PBT away for food. LN is still picky eater and will only eat Mysis

Acros tips are browning and disintegrating. Not sure what the cause is because nothing has changed. Came home after the weekend and noticed the bonsai that has been encrusting and growing good is losing polyps and tips are browning with the rest of them.

Many of you know how frustrating it can be but I’m at a complete loss
Plans to ship ICP test this weekend in hopes it shows something

Sucks about your Acropora. I hate reef mysteries. Love seeing the photo dump though. That Toadstool got huge fast.
Hope I can figure out Acropora I really want to keep some. I find them to be very interesting.

I may have to settle for GSP,Duncan and leather tank lol.
