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
Hey All, so I woke up this morning and checked my tank with a flashlight like I do every morning and noticed two areas on the base of my strawberry shortcake acro where the tissue receded off the skeleton over night. The SSC has been in my tank for 3 weeks today without issue. I was even beginning to see some more growth from the base on the frag plug. I just checked all my parameters and everything is normal for my tank. Tested with red sea kits with exception of the Phos test which is Salifert. Nitrates: 5-10 ppm (a little high for SPS I know) Phos: 0.01 Ca: 425 Mg: 1520 Alk: 8.4 Salinity: 1.025 Temp: 80 Mag has always been a bit high but I haven't had any issues with this previously. I also recently began running Kalkwasser in my ATO to help keep my Ca levels up. All other SPS/corals seem to be fine, but my rainbow micromussa hasn't opened since I changed the water on Friday. Heres a photo with the affected area circled. The other white area below the circle is a bit of coral glue from a messy frag gluing job. Oops. That was about two weeks ago. My only course of action at this time is to continue to monitor it and see if it spreads any further. Anyone have any ideas on what could possibly be causing this? Should I be doing something else to address this? I don't want to make any drastic changes to the tank when everything seems to be doing well.
