Alright, what's going on here? As you can see, the top candycane is puffy and happy and actively growing, and so are all the other corals in the tank, so I don't think it's a parameters issue. It's looked basically like this since I brought it home a month ago, and just never seems to have grown or looked better than it does right now. The bottom polyp also always has something coming out of its mouth. So what do we think? Too much light? Not enough? Too close to the other candycane? Predation? Disease? What's best course of action?
So I need some help to not make mistakes with my new candy cane frag. How do I take care of them and what should I feed them? I fed my old ones fish pellets and mysis but these don’t seem to want to eat. They’re in the process of splitting and when I just went to blow some sand off I think I may have damaged the tissues between the heads a little. I need to nnow what you guys recommend and how to keep these guys healthy and happy unlike my last set. also if you wouldn’t mind telling me if what I think is damage between the heads is something they’ll recover from? I’d appreciate it
So today is finally here, today I move from the original Pico to the new one.
