    WoW [smiley=2thumbsup.gif]!!  Those are some really nice pictures!  What kind of supplements and ir trace elements do you use?  You have some really beautiful corals and inverts!

    Hi there and thanks! The only supplements I use are a home-made calcium supplement, Kent's Superbuffer and Epsom salts for magnesium. I also add Iodine but only a few drops every other month :)

    It seems to be doing a bit better lately. Arms are coming out again, he is eating every 2-3 days. I vary the food from krill, silversides, octopus, squid and scallops. He seems to like it all.

    Thanks again to everyone.

    Just an update on the Rose. It is looking much better. Arms are extended and colored again. Seems I had a bad hydrometer even though I cleaned it with vinegar after each use. The salinity got up to 1.032. So I did a couple water changes to bring it down to 1.026 and also invested in a refractometer. So much easier than tapping bubbles off an arm.

    It is eating now and much fuller. Looks like the day I bought it again.

    Thank you to all who helped me on this one. Much appreciated.

    Poppy, can you take a few pictures for us to see? It is impossible to tell you what is happening with your anemone without seeing it.
