Hi I  removed some softies and rock yesterday as it looked cramped and want to add more Lps and sps . Noticed my big toadstool has a rip in it . Is it separating naturally or damaged

Hard to tell. My long polyp toadies split by tearing down the centre like that.  It's a slow, gradual process, that takes weeks.  Was this a sudden change?  Could the new Angel  be eating it?

Thinking about it more the cleaner shrimp has been on it for the last 2 or 3 weeks so I think it's naturally splitting and the shrimps cleaning up

That's looking spot on now Ady, bet you're well pleased with it?
There's a fine line between success and failure like there's a difference between surviving and thriving and we are all striving for a thriving success.

Thanks:
