  1. Yea, it fully opens within 30 mins of lights going off and stay open until they first turn on. Confused, but im happy if they are. I'll take the advice and try to feed with lights on and see what happens next few weeks.
  2. High lights? Flow? That's a good idea tho, I will do thaat
  3. So you think it's just out all night to feed? Should I adjust the location to a darker place in my tank? I may be able to find a shaded area
  4. Tank is 40 gals, set up for 7 months now, other corals doing fine, mostly softies. Water flow low/moderate Salinity 1.026 Temp 78 Nitrates .25 Phosphates 0 pH range 8 Alkalinity 9 Calcium 425 Magnesium (no test) Not sure the parameters matter to it since it fully expands at night with lights off. It retracts even if lights are at 5%
  5. So I got a Duncan coral about a week ago. I acclimated it and placed in lower light area at first due to shipping in dark. A week later it still won't fully extend. It is barley visible poking out past the skeleton. Tonight after lights went off it came out and is now full extended. Is this normal? It's sitting in at the bottom of my tank on the outside of a 100w led light. I checked water and it's all normal. All other coral is popping!
  6. Submersible water quality monitor for sump tanks with digital LED display
  7. Yea. It was at fish feeding time come to think of it. Thank you.
  8. So I've noticed over the last few days the mini brittle stars (hitchhikers) are coming out more often during the day. Is this common? I know they are usually nocturnal animals. Is my water going bad for them?
  9. Thank you! I'll do that.. so far no, nothing is reaching up. I do have a leather that won't fully extend polyps.
  10. Well I'm not sure what they were under before. This is the only light I've used on this tank. Nothing is bleaching, but seems to not be growing well either. I run them at 50% now.
  11. So I got an aqua light 30*3w LED picked it up used. I have it over my 20gal tall tank. How do I know if I need a defuser? Should I run the lights at 100%? Two lights are green two lights are red, 2 lights are UV, 12 lights are white and 12 lights are blue. I have soft coral in the tank at various heights. Thanks.
  12. With the swing for now, be sure no bubbles are on the arm.
  13. From a friend who is in the hobby Just started a tank up again after 15 years out of the hobby Originally, I did it on my own. I got a buddy into it after that. We both quit, he started back a few years ago and got me back into it Just a 20gal, for now ,. Some soft coral and one clown fish with cleaning crew Never thought of a dream fish Dream coral would be a brain coral I hope this was the right place to post this for newbies
