i got a duncan a week ago. a good frag with 9 heads (including babies). however, only 3 head are fully emerged (all heads were open in the store) . the rest are semi open or closed in the pic.

is it sick or not. (those have barely opened in a week) He was the last duncan they have and they barely have them. (yet loaded with hammers and torches.) so I dont want it to die or do any emergency fragging.

It is also the centerpiece for now. my ph,nitrate etc levels are fine. And my acan coral is THRIVING so i dont think its the water. Dont think my fauna are killing it. Can you guys tell me whats wrong plz. Hope its not sick :(. Was expensive too.

i have a bicolor blenny

fireshrimp, ghostshrimp

keyholelimpet

nasarius snail.

large chesnut snail

purple sponge.

3 dwarf ceriths

a red and pink acan

How old is the tank? What is the salinity? What lighting, I really hope you dont have just a freshwater light.

stock spec v lighting isn't suitable for corals.

 

It's good for low light freshwater plants and algae.

 

The tanks stock pump provides very little flow in the tank as well.
