I've got this plate. After I researched it - these are the things I figured out (of which, I might be wrong) My T5's will give it enough light on the bottom of my 55. That's all the feeding it needs - but it can be fed meaty pieces to help it. I haven't been feeding it directly. It prefers low flow. I keep it in an area where it gets low flow, but still enough to keep its tentacles waving in the current. I've only had it a couple of weeks. At first it looked wonderful. Tentacles were growing and all that. Then it started looking bad. After keeping an eye on it, it seems like the problem was hermit crabs constantly climbing around on it. You can see a lot of its skeleton. It slimed a lot last weekend, but has since stopped sliming. This is what I've done since then to help it. Using another 3reefers idea of keeping it in a martini glass full of substrate. This having the benefit of a. a lot closer to the light and b. keeps the crabs off it. And I have started feeding it raw pieces of fish and shrimp. I started feeding zooplankton. This is actually for my bubble and torch's benefit, but just FYI. I've been doing those things since Sunday. It hasn't been long so I'm still observing, but I haven't seen a lot of improvement yet. I'd like some help with this coral as I really don't want to lose it. Ideas? Oh, and it's difficult to feed it because the blenny and a clown keep stealing its fish meat. So I plan on putting a glass over it today until it's able to suck the meat inside of itself. Any problems with doing that? Any other suggestions? It's not a water quality issue, I know that much. It's the only thing in the tank that appears stressed. Params anyway though PH 8.3 SG 1.026 Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, Phosphate all 0 Ca 440 Mg 1450 dKH 12 Temp 80 If nothing else, I'll just keep feeding it meat now and leave it in the martini glass and keep observing. Feeding it every other day since Monday (so Monday and today so far).
