how did it look in the shop? how did u acclimate it?
Like that (Thats with my actinics and crappy camera)
Floated for about 25 minutes, Then dripp acclimated it for about an hour ish... Im not 100% sure on the exact times bout those are rough estimates.
IME there's no need to remove a coral that's dying (not to say that yours is. . ) but, it's not like an anemone. Compared to other marine creatures, many corals have a small flesh to bone ratio--meaning that it can die, and rot, and your tank would experience no ammonia or nitrite spike--no worse for the wear.
Give it a few days. Hopefully it will all be fine in some time. Be patient.
Good to know! Thanks! +k
Red Gambit +1 with everyone that says leave it
the skin on these corals is very thin
they deflate to get rid of the water they hold and then expand taking in new water
they can do this on a daily basis IME
the skeleton is visible but it seems to be visible through skin, rather than being expossed
Well ATM, Just shut down the lights on the tank for the night, Gonna check out with a flashlight in an hour or two to see if the sweeper tentacles come out..
well pretty much everyone told you what i was going to say. lol
so yea good advice everyone.
I hope it's okay!!!
Me too.. No tentacles yet...
I think it's playing a prank on you, and in the morning everything will be fine!
