FishProblem posted a topic in Beginners DiscussionI got an Utter Chaos zoa from a local reefer just over a week ago now. It's my first coral. Drip acclimated and dipped in Coral RX before adding to the tank. Of the five polyps, only one didn't start opening immediately. It was closed up even tighter the next day, and has been that way while the other four seem to be happily doing their thing. Today I checked on the tank, and the pissed off polyp is brown all over. I have no idea what's wrong, and would really appreciate help with a disease ID and advice on treatment. Tank is 2.5 gallons. 1.025 SG (consistent thanks to my ATO), temp between 77.3 and 78.5°F. 0/undetectable ammonia, 0 nitrite, 2-5 nitrate. I haven’t tested for phosphate yet but can if that would help. I'm using Tropic Marin Pro mixed with distilled water right now, no dosing and no reactors. Just rock for filtration. I've got some cerith snails and a scarlet hermit in the tank. The zoa frag is the only coral. Have I missed any important info? The unwell polyp is top left of the frag.
