That big zoa i have is suffering like mad, i see some kind of "spike/tunnel" with some fluffy kind of thing coming out (looks like a skinny pulsing xenia tbh)
also some aptasia, i don't think much of it will survive - the rock it's on fits so well in my scape so i'll leave it for now, worst comes to worse i'll frag some off.

Get a pic, sounds interesting. Probably expelling its zoanthella (sp).

I will try but the weird thing is whatever it is the zoa's next to that and the aptasia actually open.. the zoa's on the other side of the rock ain't opened in about 3 days.
BUT;
I got fed up of having big fish food tubs knocking around so i bought some little jars, some knife kit and that thing you linked me a while back @Garf :D, i spend when i'm bored lol.

Nice. I was looking the other night, and saw some digital hydroids, they look pretty cool. They are pretty long, and weird looking. I hear they will come and go, so not worried too much about them. I have had good results using AptasiaX to get rid of one aptasia on my rock. The other one was removed outside of the tank, it was on a frag plug, which I then super glued over the area. I have been lucky with pests so far. my one tiny patch of hair algae seems to be hanging around. I pulled on it a bit the other week, then I saw my blenny munching on it and a hermit.

I'm pretty sure i have feather dusters growing inside my "main" zoa. Still fighting the hair algae but it's a lot better than it was.
Today i moved some coral off their frags and onto the rock work, i'm still unsure on the gsp location, might be okay once the xenia grows up some?
I know i'll regret putting the gsp and xenia on the main rock work in the future :D!

Not sure on the kenya location either, the spikey thing no idea where to put, there's some mushrooms behind it too.
Think i might do an acan garden in the bottom left, but it does pretty well where it is now (bottom right).

I'm open to ALL suggestions here 😄

P.S Big thank you to @Ratvan for the coral i've named "the gift" 😄

I know the top one is a hammer but would you guys say this is a purple/green torch? I thought it was maybe a frogspawn when i first got it but it was very small back then and i don't see much
of the 'branching' kind of looks like a hammer to me idk 😄 I ask as i kind of want to fill that area of the tank with hammer,torch,frog.

P.s if you look close at the hammer you can see my emerald crab hugging it on the left, he's always up there recently lol.

Yeah some tips look like hammers and the others perfectly circle tips.
Ah it's like working out what gender people are in 2019.

Well i've been ill so the tank has been super neglected, i've had some growth on other corals but that main zoa i had is next to nothing now.
I took it out the tank today to have a proper look and what i thought was the sand sticking to my nice hair algae that's came back due to neglect there's
some sort of white' snail type tubes and also 1 long one that looks like the hulks vein. 

I inspected the coral for about 20min under magnifying glass wasn't until i added coral dip that massive bristleworm (it is a briste, right? XD) popped out.
Just goes to show how sneaky they are if 20min with a magnifying glass and i didn't see it.

Could my toadstool leather coral possibly be the reason my corals are suffering lately? 
I read they can have out some toxins in the water. My acan is looking a little rough now too 😞

I could run some carbon to counter it maybe?

It is possible - it's a great idea to run carbon in any system that houses leathers; in smaller systems, it is almost mandatory.
