    Growing Hole in GSP. What should I do?

    (Edited: the bristle worm is no longer living in the coral. The hole is my primary concern now. It appears to have grown over the 14 days I've had the coral, and the last two days the polyps have been tightly closed. The first photo is from day one, the second is from day 12.) I got my first coral, a quarter-sized GSP frag at a swap last week. It looks... okay. I didn't dip it before adding (I know, I know) and only about half to 1/3 of the polyps will extend. Upon getting the frag home, I immediately saw a bright orange bristle worm curl up inside the coral. There's a raw hole through the coral's purple 'flesh', and I don't know what to do. In the pictures (sorry they're so blurry!) you can see the orange worm hiding inside the hole, and then crawling across the GSP. Did the worm eat its way into the coral? I'm pretty confident this isn't a bearded fireworm so I'm leaning away from that idea. However, the hole looks like it's growing 😬 Did the coral start to die back first, and then the worm moved in? Is the worm irritating the coral, causing the polyps to stay closed? Making the hole bigger? Ultimately I wonder, should I remove the worm? Is my coral dying regardless of the worm? I'm also a complete novice when it comes to coral care, so maybe the GSP is just taking a long time to acclimate. My water is: 0,0,0, 80F, 1.025, 7-8dKh, calcium 480, mag 1320, and phosphate is undetectable with my API test. Any advice would be great! Thanks 🙂

    Green Star Polyp Recovery

    Hi all, I can't believe I managed to do this but I somehow seem to be killing Green Star Polyp. I have a 10g tank and I went away for a little over 2 weeks for Christmas. I knew this was going to be stressful on the tank so I did the best I could to prepare such as putting a glass tank top on it to slow evaporation and an automatic fish feeder. Despite the top, almost half the water had evaporate from the tank, but all fish and snails were fine. I added water over the course of a few days and did a 30% water change, I have also since added a torch coral and pistol shrimp. Everything seems to be doing well except the green star poly seems to be struggling to recover, if recovering at all. Any advice on speeding up the recovery? Attached are photos of the coral before I left and after I got back (clearly much smaller now). I also included a photo of water parameters. Salinity is around 1.023 and temperature is about 77. Thanks, Chris

    FREE GSP?!?!

    I was at my lfs and looked at the corals, i wantd 1 for my 1 gallon pico as the only coral in it, I wanted gsp but they didnt have it so i decided to buy a kenya tree coral, once getting larger, i frag it, put it in the pico, so i put the kenya tree in 1 of my other tanks, a 5 gallon. I looked at it and saw these tiny little guys. 😁. have a white center, is a pale green. did i get FREE gsp palys 😀
  4. Kinda sucks this is my first post on a forum I lurk almost daily on. but anyways, I noticed with my first 2 corals I have bought (a pulsing xenia & GSP) that one is doing great and the other looks like it's been receding. My xenia is growing and doing really nice so I wont talk about that one, but instead on my GSP. I know that you have to give a coral some time to acclimate to the tank and leave it alone. and afaik sometimes with GSP it can look pretty bad before bouncing back. well I decided to look at it more closely and i saw this white flatworm move in some of the crevices. I decided a freshwater dip would be best for about a minute, but besides the amphipods it didnt want to come off, I manually used my aquascaping tongs to reach into the coral and pull the flatworm out. well after putting the coral back into the tank, i must have agitated the flatworms, because i have pulled another two off the coral. tank specs to best of my knowledge size: 10g 2.5 months old 1.025 ppt salinity 0 ppm ammonia 0 ppm nitrite 0 ppm nitrate ~180 ppm kh 2 20" stingray LED on timer chaeto refugium AC 20 sponge filter 1 occ clown & TSB 3 electric blue hermits 1 trocus snail ~ the question is, can I have an ID on this flatworm? I searched online and this forum but cannot find anything that looks like it. And if anyone knows what it is can they tell me if they are beneficial or parasitic? could this be the reason my GSP is not doing well? Thanks ahead of time for the replies,

    ritter anemone interactions?

    I just got a nice big ritter anemone for my tank for my clown's and he is doing well. I was curious if there is any concern with him being close to my green star polyp coral. I noticed it's polyps have been retracted for the past couple days. I looked around online but couldn't find anything definitive. Would really appreciate any info. Thanks!
