So what was the fix???? Where were they coming from?
On a side note.... my little purple zoas with orange mouths are all PO today for no reason, all the other zoas are fine.
No marks etc on them, and i can't dip them as they have attached to a rock now and I don't want to rip polyps off of them. I guess I will just watch them for now, they seem to be opening more but very slowly.
I will later this afternoon once I am doing placing the new corals
Even though I did not have to change the tubing from the pump to the return it was worth it, because the original one that come with the pump was really gross. Plus the new one is clear so I can see what is going on with the water flow in the return tubing.
The waterfall that comes from Ch.2 into Ch.3 is what was the culprit. Bubbles are formed from the waterfall which is a natural occurrence but they were instantly sucked into the pump and then they get broken up and spit out through the return/powerhead = eye soar
... I found a old thread last night in the AIO/Microbubble topics and questions and someone suggested that it could be the waterfall and to place filter floss to soften impact of the waterfall and breaking up the bubbles.
I placed a small filter sponge I have there instead. It is doing the trick I still have to do some minor adjustments because I am still getting 5% microbubbles. But that is not a big deal.
I hope your zoa opened. Maybe their mood will pass. I have a one zoa out of each new cluster I have doing the same thing in a away. I hope that isn't going to turn into them being ill. Moody corals suck.
