I ham having some weird stuff happening to all of my soft corals my red mushroom coral (elephant ear) were extremely upset looked like coral mucus and the likes was starting to form yesterday, today they seem better, now my Kenya trees polyps are not opening on all of the branches of my trees. I had some bad juju going on with a cyano
outbreak just did a 50 % h2o change, and manually removed the cyano
, would be the second water change this week. is it normal for these coral to go in to dormant states, could it possibly be ther is not enough food or phytoplankton to sustin them.. I have cut down feeding and reduced nitrates drasticly over the period of a few weeks in an atempt to better my system, I also have been removing my bio balls at the discretion of this site and the LFS
(im at 50 % less as of this week).. I read that puting phytoplex or aditives of the like for coral food is like pouring a jug of nitrates in to your tank is there anything I could cultivate in my refugium to feed coral? any advice would be greatly apreciated..
