What conditions is everyone keeping their predators at? Mine just don't seem as happy as my other high end zoas (Thermosphere, GMK, LSOH, Exosphere, etc).

I am at:
100-150 par
78 F
35 ppt
8 dkh, 440 Ca, 1400 Mg
3-4 NO3, 0.03-0.05 PO4
Everything in line with Triton NSW values (Sr, I , K etc)

Usually when my new zoa's aren't happy it's because I didn't acclimate them to higher light. Usually place new zoa's in sub 100 par them slow move them closer to the par target I want them in.

I did just get a pred zoa in a trade today, so I can keep you posted on my experience
