I have a colony of clove polyp and each few days it seem that one more polyp is not opening. I also have 2 other variety of glove polyp and they are doing well and all are opening.
So I am wondering if I should use a lugol dip for them? anything else I can do and when a polyp does not open for a week or more should I consider it dead and cut it off?
They are green glove polyp or green clove polyp, quite large. When I fist got it about a week ago they were practicaly all open and only one or 2 were not open and now it seem that about 6 to 8 are not opening.
My water is great:
ammonia, nitrites and nitrastes: 0
Calcium 400, magnesium: 1420
Kh at 8
No algae problem, nothing out of the ordinary. Alveopora doing well, as much as my flame scallop, sponge and feather duster, hot pink ricordea...all doing well except the clove polyp.
Is clove polyp sensitive? what to do if some close and won't open back?
