Brutal. Truly hate that for you and hope the rest pulls through!Today is indeed “tank” changing for me. I was greeted with when I stepped into office. All parameters were spot on and no alarms from APEX, but an overwhelming rotting stench.
Found the cause immediately, my foot long Black widow anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor) suddenly after 1-2 months decided to challenge the WAV. The WAV cover did break off in the fight, but the anemone was all over the tank and took a many of my fishes along with it.

And left me with…
Powder blue tang (Acanthurus leucosternon)
Purple tang (Zebrasoma xanthurum)
Zebra moray (Gymnomuraena zebra)
Black percula x 2 (Amphiprion percula var.)
Skunk cleaner shrimp x 2 (Lysmata amboinensis)
Not sure if they will pull through the night. And many of my corals are closed and receding.
What is left is an eerie glow, after 10 hours of cleaning, 20% water change (would have done more if I hadn’t ran out of salt) and lots of carbon.
Thanks! I’m playing smart the second time by getting this bright pink tipped Aussie elegance.Oh man sorry to hear, this is heartbreaking Hope your corals recover well! I'm sure youll come back stronger. This makes me reconsider getting a Colorado sunburst anemone.
STAX does provide a ton of space for my overzealous acquisition of LPS. You have not yet seen my ACANTOPHYLLIA collection down in my sump. I’ll be packing them (LPS) tight, with the help of encrusting montipora, cyphastra, etc. I hope to break the shape of the STAX, which I’m not a fan of too. The upper part of STAX will be filled with ACROPORA. Let’s see how it pans out, if not I will have to like what you say… handing out LPS to make space for SPS. Cheers!How are you liking the stax rocks? I’m not really a big fan of them but they do add more room to add corals. I added sand to my system because I couldn’t stand the barebottom look. Also I think you have too many LPS corals so let me have some so you can have room for your SPS colonies!
