Second photo is today
lol well some days that is how it feels
Some favia's can take more light, some can't. It's a good chance that it's getting too much light. Could be too much flow also. I'd move it to a very low light area and see how it responds.
IMO,a lot of people have corals that are slightly "bleached" and don't realize it. I don't really like that term, but, whatever. The coral has a slight opaqueness to it, and not a deep color. More light should yield more growth, to a point, but I try to find the best location to maintain a deep color. Move it, then take a picture of it in a week and compare it.
thank you - I will keep an eye hope it opens tonight when I feed the sun coral
Well last night the sweepers came out and ate brine shrimp ;D
Nice! Switch to mysis if you have some. Brine isn't a real good food for fish or corals.
Really why is that? Mysis is a lot better?
I mix the following
finely chopped vitamin enhanced squid
vitamin enhanced brine shrimp
few drops of phytoplankten
4 crushed up pellets
I also feed some nori
Just found the above post
The brine shrimp I use has spirulina in it too
Brine is largely devoid of nutrition, whereas mysis is not. Think of it like snicker bars vs steak.
I would take a Snickers bar over a steak;D
awww now I want a Snickers, and a steak.:-[
