Hi everyone. So here is the scoop... I've been running a FOWLR tank for 3 years now. About 4 months ago, I upgraded from my 30g to a 90g. All my livestock made it over, and everything has been doing great. Last night, I purchased my first 4 coral frags, and got one free! It was 9:30 at night when I placed the corals in my tank. I got 1 decent sized pulsing xenia, a hammer coral, an eagle eye zoa, and a radio active dragon eye zoa, and a free shelf coral frag of some sort. So I placed the frags in my tank, and within 30 minutes, the zoa's had opened right up, and the hammer coral was looking pretty good (not as great as when I picked him up at the store). The pulsing xenia was about 1/2 the size it was when I got it, but was slowly pulsing nonetheless. I was instructed to place the frags all at the bottom of the tank, and move them up slowly over time to allow them to acclimate to the lighting, so that's what I did. I placed everything on the sandbed, except the xenia. I read they light more intense light, so I placed him about 1/3 way up the tank on some LR. When I woke up this morning, a large hermit was pretty much sitting ontop of him, and had pushed him over in such a way that one of his branches had buckled over. I kicked the hermit off, and when I went to straighten the xenia, it was like snowflakes came off it as I moved it. It is also weeping some sort of mucous like substance. It is now 1/4 the size it was when I bought it, and quite plainly looks like crap. The pompoms or w/e they're called are so small they're almost impossible to make out at this point. Also, the hammer coral is not opening up much today. (I know it takes time to acclimate, but he's just not as full as he was last night) Is it just in shock from being traumatized? I've read they're hardy, which is why i wanted to start with one. Find pictures attached. Other info on the tank: 90 Gallon Aquaticlife T5 4 bulb (2 pure actinic, 1 purpleblue, 1 white) Sump with protein skimmer running (undersized, but doing well) 2, Koralia 2 powerheads, and a good amount of flow from return pump. Decent coraline growth over the past month. (Urchin eats it all) Inhabitants: Numerous hermits, snails. 2 Urchins 1 Pajama Cardinal Mated Pair Perc. Clowns 3 Green chromis Chem / Water Params: Water temp: 80 Ammonia: 0 Nitrates: 0 Nitrites: 0 Ca: 460 Alk: 9 / 161.1 pH: 7.8 Phosphate : 0 The only thing that is a little high is my salinity at 1.028. I didn't realize how much water had evaporated. I'm working on bringing it down over the next 4 hours. But is that enough to stop the hammer from opening up? Does the xenia look like it's dead? Thanks in advance for your time, and constructive criticism. View youtube vid in HD for a quick tank tour and some footage of each of the corals, including the xenia. I've also attached a pic of what the hammer looked like last night for comparison to how it looks in the vid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvvF4gQfpN8 <----------------------------VIDEO LINK HERE!
