    Yer I was careful I left it to last thing to move as it big and heavy, nothing landing on it as far I know.
    Could it be splitting ?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Sometimes they just do this as a means of reproduction, longitudinal or transversal division.

    Sometimes you just need to increase the flow to prevent accumulation of detritus.

    Did you move the tank, or take the coral out and move it?

    How's it look today?

    I'm assuming all params are equal in each of these tanks ? Same or close to the conditions in both..flow/heat.?
