    If the paly is doing fine, then just keep an eye out on it. You don't want any nudibranch infesting it or laying eggs near it.

    Kind of an odd ball question... are you originally from India? Your english is very good.

    No idea actually - some kind of sponges I guess. Now are bigger and when few of balls grows and touch each other they merge in a bigger ball. I also saw one growing in my sump. They are too cool to remove them and I hope I will not regret this :) . One remark on them - once I keep the NO3 level to absolute 0.00 level they just turn brown. Once some NO3 in water 0.25-0.50 level, come back white and nice.
    Yes, I am talking about the violet channel of a led fixture. Those eggs are white and have some fluorescence. Closed zoas are dull under such light and you can really see the white dots popping up in this light. OK, I have a 400-430 nm dedicated channel with more than average LEDs, so this may not work for every fixture. Also small pest anemones (forgot their english name ) are sooo easy to spot with violet leds.

    Lol.. well 95% of the schools have english education in major cities of india, im from mumbai (bombay). Govt schools have english jus as a subject, but hardly any1 from good families go there. Though the fees of schools are like 3000$ to 10000$ to 25000$ yearly. I remember my fees were around 2000$ + pvt tutors.. its a tremendous waste though i feel, they have made education a huge business out here. Its sad. my sister stays in usa south carolina, her kids recieve same education for free.. lol

    I threw away the zoas and scraped off them from the paly frag. The seller is refunding me the money. Now for a month i guess i wont add any zoa, will that be fine?
