    Once again it happens. Rastas started as one polyp to 50+ then all are closed and melting the next day. Only zoas, I swear.

    ^ That has got to be a chemistry issue? I saw something regarding that the other day. I will see if I can find it.

    Well it's not what we consider a bad chemistry issue, it's more of they prefer a nitrate level of such and such. Ya know we collect corals, specifically zoanthids from all over the globe, it only seem natural that some are not going to like the same chemistry as others. The old you can not make everyone happy. Crossing my fingers I do not experience your issue with Rastas.

    It almost looks like some imploded? I'm hoping they come around. They were growing so well too. I dipped them in iodine to be safe so I'm crossing my fingers.
