I do not mention that my water from water change is yellow.
If there are or no toxins in the water, it doesn't hurt to use GAC. One variable less.What seemed to slowly fix them was adding chemipure carbon bags (2 bags rated for 50 gallons each) and them letting them go for a month and then changing them one at a time again after they had absorbed the toxins the Dino algae released
This zoas what i have was huge before. Only dragon ball was small. Everything else was 3x bigger before.So small zoas, they do exist. Some zoas are naturally smaller than other zoas and its normal and healthy. Eagle eyes, pikachu, charmander, etc are some of the small zoas. If they are open then they are healthy, don’t worry.
But it takes about half a year for them to shrink. They have been so small as in the pictures for half a year.Zoas not opening could be anything. A hermit crab walking over it, an asterina star attack, recent dip, acclimating to tank changes, you bumped it accidentally, a fish got too close, the zoa is sick. A closed zoa could be a lot of things.
I dip in Furan 2 and see improvement on 2 corals ( king midas and sunny days on the photos ), Coral RX 3 x reccomended dosage improvement on Armor of God( they open up) , brightwell medicoral( iodine dip ) recomended dosage and nothing change.You dipped and didn’t find any nudibranch or spiders which is also good news.
You said your water change water was yellow, do you know why? Detritus, algae, etc?
Shrink and not growing. They not melt. They just get to small to survive. I have 3 rastas before and i dont know, that i have 5 of them becouse 2 shrink to super small size. Now i have 5 normal polyps. What i notice in the tank that Coraline algae is not growing. I dont know why .So, just so I understand, you’re having problems with your zoas melting, being small, and not opening right?
I saw them one time and dip immediately in 3x reccomended dosage of Coral RX. This was so small ( 1 milimeter ), a entirely black oblong worm that has entered the center of the coral. It was slow like a snail but not looking like it( maybe too small )I see you talk about “little black bugs” can I have a picture of those? They may be harmless amphipods or something more sinister like amphipods that eat/host zoas and may cause them to not open which can eventually lead to death.
Okey . I will solve these problems (NO3 , starfish) and if it does not help, I will write in this threadYou’re fixing the nutrient issue and are removing the asterinas so I think you’ll see major improvements soon!
Can you post some pictures of the crumpled corals? Never heard a description like that beforeOkey . I will solve these problems (NO3 , starfish) and if it does not help, I will write in this thread
I was surprised that one coral looked like a crumpled sheet of paper even though I didn't notice any asterines on it.
Meny of my corals looked like crumpled sheet of paper.
