    Crappy pics I know but this was/is my once thriving (3days ago) small colony of zoas. The only ones I've been able to keep. Stretched upwards and skinny.

    What have you done to the tank in the past 5 days or so?

    Have you checked your parameters yet?

    Russ- If I am not mistaken, they werent stretched and stressed looking, and no pinched look to them 2 days ago.

    Pretty sure they were normal healthy looking polyps, till that pic.

    how old are your bulbs and also check your flow make sure it hasn't changed pump plugged or due for a good cleaning or something
    I have been reefing from 08-2007 till 5-2011

    reef tanks are like wifes you have to give them some attention every now and then

    current tank is an 80g FW containing Oscars

    Just changed both bulbs within the last 2 months~flow seems the same, actually cleaned that out with last WC little over a week ago. Today not only are they skinny, now most of them are closed and skinny. Could blue leg hermits be messing with them? Little buggers crawl over everything.
