That is really nice..you have done a great job on the recovery...it certainly has become blue.
Nice find, but be sure to keep it away from your rocks or you will soon re-classify it as a weed!!!;D
I have it covering one wall of glass. I like it there, but I fear for the day it gets a hold on my rocks.:
ohh yea! I already learned my lesson with my Yellow Polyp Coral, their now on a large rock that I don't want them on, 1 managed somehow to get on there and now there is 4, thinking about going against what I believe in and destroy those 4 before they cover the rock.
Its been tough watching this Coral melt away to almost nothing and not being able to do a thing about it, more so after watching it recover so nicely, I really liked that Coral, in yellow is the only healthy looking colonies left, the red will be gone and melted real soon I am sure.
What happened? They looked like they were thriving in the other pics
I really don't know Camkha1234, Corailline told me sometimes they just melt for some unknown reason, but I do suspect it was due to unstable water temps, this started around the same time the heat wave started and temps in my tank got as hight as 86, this Coral I read likes slightly cooler temps like around 76 to 72, I have had such a hard time keeping my temps below 80.
Sorry to hear that maybe you could add a chiller.
Mind did the same, flourished for months then just faded away while my other Xenia thrived! No reason as far as I could tell!
Yes! I won't be long before the snow bug flies here, one less worry! I did make a diy chiller today, I tested it and I dropped the water by 16 degrees, from the water going in and water coming out, so that will help at night when I am sleeping and I can't put ice in there
Perfect! As long as it works
