Hi all.

I am having issues with my zoas. I noticed that they have started to not open up, some areas are disappearing and I am noticing a some are kinda turning black and disappearing. Can anyone hell. I have them in a relatively low flow and parameters seem good. Nitrates maybe a lil low since its a newer tank..
I have a photo of what they looked like 2 weeks ago and now what they look like now. Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

cheers

If the water parameters are fine and they aren't starved due to nutrient deficiency (low P and N) it is probably a bacterial infection (Zoas turning black). In that case they are pretty much done for, unless you have furan 2 available.
I am fighting a zoa infection for two months now and it is a loosing battle. Sadly we don't have nitrofurazone available here in germany and neither Dino x nor chemiclean did help. My last effort to save them will be Reef Flux
