My other euphyllia was recessed when first introduced and opened up. This one is recessed but the color is gone… almost some brown patches.Looks like the flesh is receding into the center of the skeleton. That’s never a good sign
I had to move it, everything else is doing too good. Under the other light, it looks like brown is encrusting across the green recessed polyps…. This can’t be good. Yeah uhm never buying from them again. None of the stuff I got was nicely packaged or kept :/ the hammer I got from Shane is doing great, I just didn’t see a green one on this sale and I was impatient :/If you look at the stalks of most euphellia you can see the flesh going downward. On the one in the picture it’s receded all the way to the center of the skeleton. Not sure if it has brown jelly or it just needs some tlc in a stable system. It’s a gamble either way
Wil do, I just hope if it’s brown jelly, I wasn’t too late and it didn’t spreadLarge flatworms are likely euphyllia eating flatworms. Lots of dips will kill the flatworms. I like Bayer insecticide for flatworms. Dips won’t kill the eggs though, so you should think about dipping once a week for about a month to eradicate the babies when they hatch. Here’s a thread with others detailing their experience;
I see them on all my Euphyllia right now. Two euphyllia (hammer and torch) are very unhappy. Pics included. I think you can see eggs on the bottom pic. Thought it was because My nitrates are too low but not the case I guess. I believe these are EEFW but if they are another kind of flatworm let...www.reef2reef.com
For a $10 hammer that’s half dead, I’d probably trash it versus letting the flatworms spread to others euphyllia.
Some of mine open all day every day, one of mine rarely has extension. Some Gonis reach for the sky while others are just tight and compact for some reason. Flow has been discussed as a possible reason, but all of mine are in a group and I can rearrange them and still the same ones stay open and the same ones stay tight.How many days for gonipora to extend? Mine are opened but just at the skeleton, sometimes I see them sneak a bit out and then I’ll come back and they are just opened again no extension
Gotcha, mine aren’t in high flow, just enough to sway. My torches and hammers get a bit moreSome of mine open all day every day, one of mine rarely has extension.
