WOW! That has amazing color.
alright I'll try the feeding when I get home.. i'll try to save him first before I pull him out! tnx!
i would get it out from between the rocks to get a little more light
I thought they didn't like a lot of light...
I agree more light, feeding and I would do an iodine dip to help clean the flesh where it is breaking down.
They can be in the open when down on the sand.
Where can I get an iodine dip.. I don't have any, im in class right now but when I get home i'll give him a bit more light and i'll spot feed him
2in10 knows what he is talking about, he has saved my coral last night.
I agree being in full light at the bottom is the best - I read that they only need moderate light. Correct me if I am wrong - but the darker the color the more light they need. If you have t5's on the sand bed in the open is the best.
I'll move him when I get home so he gets some more lighting should I move him higher up for a little while?
IMO - no - they need the sand bed - if you put him on the rock you could tear the skin.
Also I did not take mine out (the first one that was already dieing) and it did not affect the parameters of my tank.
Mine is a 75gal with 50lb of lr/base rock
