I always found that soft corals liked as much flow as hard ones, when I had less flow they would shut down every so often then shed and expand .They never did this when I increased the flow. I have no idea how much flow you have. Also theres the issue of water quality and are any of the other corals acting the goat? It may purely be that its adjusting to new conditions like light , etc. Soft corals can sulk amazingly .
Thanks for your rapid replies people, I will check prams tomorrow, but I'm nit expecting any issues.On a you tube video from reefcentral, they did indicate lots of flow and high lighting, the former isn't a problem, it's almost being blown off its perch, but regarding light, could anyone dictate how long I should have the intense (middle of the day) period for?
Back when I moved from T5 only to T5 plus halide ,I noticed mine,which had a purple base and green polyps did do better. But they shouldnt really be high demand on the lighting front. As for LED I havent yet ever got my head round it . I have LED lights but so far havent got the results I did with Halide .
I'm using ecotech 's AB+ programme which is 7 hours with an hour of ramping each end. I wouldn't say they need high light though. A par level of 100-200 would be fine. They can take higher light than that but don't require it. These are not a fussy coral Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
You're right when I had Halides, things did seem to open up more, having said that, some things did get burned.I've got zero Nitrates, 0.13 phosphates (highish I know, but not so high to cause problems IMHO)However, the DT has been fallow for 2 months, despite ghost feeding, not a lot of input of phosphates.Now I'd better get that ATS finshed...and the protein skimmer installedThe finger coral is slowly coming out now, maybe it's a slow learner
@semiroundel how's it looking now sr?
Nope, nothing in the vicinity, just gone into "hiding" mode agian now, we'll see what happens when it opens again.Plenty of flow and light. Does anyone have a par reading for what they like?
