Nice job both of you!
I would say moderate lighting, and moderate indirect flow. It seems to puff up much better since i have moved it up a little bit closer to the lights and in a higher flow area than the sand bed.
Might have to move mine up a little.
Similar to acans. Medium light around 50-100 par and medium flow seems to work well. They’re not too picky though.
Also wanted to say, great peice! I nearly lost a scoly while I was still figuring out my dosing schedule with two part and nopox. I kept dipping and clearing it of detritus and dead tissue then finally once conditions improved it made a full recovery - I was quite surprised! Very durable animals, don’t give up on them. Since then I’ve started collecting more. I have a pink, green and an ultra Aussie orange/yellow/pink/green one. Wanting to get a blue variant next
Wow! Full disclosure - I read the first post with a critical mindset and thought - there is no way that's coming back. How cool to read thru the thread and follow the success story(s). I love the tidbit about removing the piece for target feeding vs target feeding in the tank and fooling around with cutup plastic bottles that want to float away, shutting down the pumps, fighting off nassarius snails, aggressive shrimps , etc. makes perfect sense- remove it, pile on the reef roids and not worry about dirtying up the tank. Congrats on some high quality reef keeping!!!!
This is great. I would like to see more of this and other success stories on recovering corals.
Here's this guy today after a little over two weeks. It's really starting to take off. I cut back some of the dead skeleton along the back.
Looking good! not sure if i will try and cut back the skeleton kind of hoping that it will one day be healthy flesh
Yeah, I wouldn't worry about. I did it just because it was potruding out a lot on that side, and didn't seem to be growing out nearly as fast as it is from the side.
This is the best feeding response ive seen so far, the mouth looks to be almost fully recovered and starting to see some small tenticles from the inside outer rim of the coral! Target feeding with oyster feast, phytoplankton and LPS pellets. Moral is improving!
These posts make me want to save a Scoly! Nice job guys!!
Hey do you guys dose either of these products? I just picked them both up and used it for the first time tonight. Within 30 min my torch got nice and fluffy like they would at peak intensity, taking a time lapse of my brain coral opening back up and I can already see it’s feeders coming back out, zoos and fully open now. Very interested to see if it will help You guys on your scoly revives with the amino acid concentrate LPS.
I have never used these products, however i do dose acropower with my dosing pump. Acropower is more for Acros obviously but interested in if its also helping my LPS
What species of phytoplankton are you feeding? I'm curious because we are always looking to improve our products and highlight better uses. Thanks for using our Oyster-Feast.
Do you know if it actually will grow back over the skeleton?
I got this one in the front from my buddy all skeleton with a little flesh. month later
It should. Mine have.
