I hope someone can give me an idea. I don't find much that tells me what to look for if this coral is stressed. It's suppose to be a good beginner coral so I am giving it a try. He has been in the tank now for two and a half weeks. Everything has been going great except today when I came home from work he has none of his feeders out. It's still like this. I did do a 3 gal water change (each week) yesterday and tested my levels. I fed everything and it seemed to handle everything fine yesterday. None of the other things are showing stress.
There is no melt down that I can see. He is standing upright still and does not have any slime on him. Param's are nitrite 0 ammonia 0 nitrate 5 ph 8.1 temp 79-81 calcium 380 alk 9. I have dosed a calcium/alk buffer to raise the calcium just a touch. I also tested for iodine and found that there was none in the tank so I dosed for that yesterday too.
Anyone own one or have any experience with one? I would love any advice you may have. Don't want to lose it considering I live in Arizona and my husband calls it his little saltwater cactus.
