    Default Wow PO'ed!!!

    So yesterday during the day my BOP got tipped over and landed on a tiny hasn't grown an inch tricolor milli. When I found it I fixed the problem right away both corals had the smallest of white spots this is what I found when I got home tonight. Grrrrrrrrr.................

    Milli still has a tiny white spot.

    The BOP was the size of a softball. All gone.

    Jamie I feel for you but I dont think your milli caused the RTN.

    Birds nest are the first to show signs of alk swings. I lost my 1.5 yr colony of Tubbs birds nest to alk swing and thats how I learn it.

    Just thought would share my experience.

    Milles are nasty but I agree with Manoj. The damage due to contact would in all likelihood be localized. Contrary to popular belief seritapora are very sensitive to alk swings, temp swings or lack of nutrients. I lost a softball sized colony overnight one time. I feel your pain. Fortunately if you acquire another piece they grow back very quickly. On another note I have seen milles sit for a year and do nothing only to suddenly take off and grow like a weed. Don't give up on it. It may become one of your favorite pieces.

    Thanks guys. I really do like the millie just wish it would do something. Tested and everything is right where it always is.
    Alk 161.1ppm
    PH 7.8
    Calc 440
    Trates 0
    Po4 0 ish (test kit so who knows for sure)
    I guess it could have been an over night swing but really wouldnt I have seen something out of the normal on the tests. It was fine except for the branch that touched the millie the flesh was gone in the area of contact. I should have cut that piece out.

    Jamie, the static numbers might look okay but the rate of change is the cause of the problem.

    My case was similar to urs, when I checked my alk it came out to be just fine but its the rate of change that causes the trigger, once triggered its hard to do anything.
