Tank is looking great!  Let me get a head of that torch when it splits!  😂

At the rate that it’s going, It’d be another 6 months from now before I have another update on the split. A branching hammer would have been 8 heads by now. 😂

One more video, probably should have done YouTube or other video hosting sites instead of Instagram. But I guess if there is enough interests, I can try to do better shots.

Dirty-glass pic of the sunnyD mound. The colony had spread over the edge of a 2” round tile. can’t decide if the spillover needs intervention/removal.  
 

Thanks @pokerdobe for figuring out why my sunnyD turned brown (answer: not enough phosphate).

Way more credit than I deserve. 

 

As for the zoas overgrowing the disk, I'd trim back. You are sandless? I'd hate to be scraping zoas off the bottom of my tank.

Who are you again? 😈

 

What's your parameters looking like? Admittedly, I've never had my zoas lose their skirts before, but it's always a good start. 😄

I know dino got you bugged out on water changes. But a little bit may help. 
 

another thought, if the skirts look damaged, you may have a rogue amphipod. I had a few big ones at one point that like to nibble on the zoa skirts.

This little bugger is why I ended up with no sand bed. I had dozens across the sand at one point.

But today I just found a new one 😱.  I must have enough detritus pile built up in one spot in the corner for this one to pop up again.  hopefully, he doesn’t have many friends left in the tank  376A2C44-A811-4868-89E7-E6B77C33F766.thumb.jpeg.e83ba60d2f1b3b5d344b85bf0985f232.jpeg

Idk, even a bta wouldn’t touch it, it actually made the BTA retracted the tentacle.  They were everywhere, it just became a bit unsightly.
