No Just that they are not at home in the sand. Here is the link to it
( I don't think that it is a very reliable source) but I just had to ask the Brain power here on 3Reef after reading it to ease my mind ;D..... John
They may prefer a hard surface to sand, but a hard suface to get a foot hold placed on the sand is not the same thing. My Xenia reattached, after I siphoned of the LR during cleaning, to a shell that is half buried in the sand.
Well I guess I deserved this!! For being kind of unsympathetic to HL14 Clam dying. :-/ I guess what comes around goes around!!! The weather made a drastic change here yesterday and it is Hotter than hell and I had to work today and nobody was home and I forgot to turn the air on in the room my tank is in and when I got home my water temp was 90 degrees and my colt coral looks like it is made out of wax and it is about 1/4 the size it was. Everything else so far seems to be OK but I am expecting the worst :'(... John
Some soft corals are pretty sensitive to over heating. Polyps and mushrooms seem a little more resilient. Way bummer fletch, but the same thing happened to a Kenyon Tree Coral that Nautilus sent me. It flat melted due to overheating in transport.
Do you think that there is any chance it will pull threw? :-/ :'(
Won't hurt to wait it out.
Will it do anything to my tank? :-/
Shouldn't do much to your 75 gallon. Running a little carbon would be a good idea anyway. Most of the damaage has been done already, if anything.
OK thank you Craig I will let it stay in the tank tonight hopefully it will come back when the temp gets back to normal :-/ But I don't have my hopes up on it surviving. ... John
