So, the last couple of days, my Euphyllia is acting up a bit. I am not sure if it is not feeling well, or if it could be splitting or perhaps something else I am not aware of. What do you guys and girls think/suggest? This morning The afternoon As for parameters, only thing that is slightly elevated is my phosphate, since I am trying to balance out my chemistry some more. Other then that, my latest paramaters, before the water change last monday. Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Nitrate: ~10ppm Phosphate: .35 PH: 8.1-8.2 dKH: ~10.5 Calcium: 460 Salinity: 1.025 Temp: 77 Could it be preserving energy? Is it dying? I don't see any little critters, nor brownish goo, or zooxanthellae being expelled or whatsoever. It's been doing this for about 3 to 4 days now. Did a 25% waterchange on monday, to see if that would help out, so far it seems not to. Other corals and livestock seem to be ok and active and I haven't changed anything particular lately. Curious what you guys think could be going on 🤔.
So I purchased this green Bubble Tip Anemone from a fellow reefers about 8 months back. In my old tank he grabbed foot right away and stayed there for about a month. He lets loose about every other month and then finds footing again a couple days later. Each time time after he lets loose I try everything I can to keep him from getting sucked into the intake, but once I think he's grabbed footing at 4am I finally get to bed then wake a few hours later to find him jammed up in the intake or powerhead. This is a whole other thread all together... I met up with the guy I bought him from and told my story... turns out, this is particular anemone is a split from his most favorite anemone he's ever had that splits about 3-4 times a year. He he says it lets loose and then splits a day or two after. Well I was up (not quite till 4) Monday night after he let loose again trying cohearse him back to the rocks and decided to let him do his thing. He developed this light pale whitish mark on his side last night after he grabbed footing. This evening climbs back behind the rocks and it looks as if he's splitting.... pics attached... I'm wondering if all the other times it let loose, he was going to split but got thrown off because of the intake/powerhead trauma. Last night Today
