    hows the gsp and paly's doing? If they are ok i wouldn't worry about your gobb's
    Like a bunch of people have said, zoa's are a bit strange at times.

    Stay on top of those Green Implosions-they're soooo hardy that they'll take over your LR-I have to cull mine at least once a week and they still look like this---->18b19601 53a0 01b0 - start of my 55 gallon reef

    Try keeping them away from all other LR.
