Never seen this happen with my red macro... Why is it turning orange? Is it about to bleach out... It's been growing from tiny under same lights, temp etc etc... All seemed perfect?!

Any help is good help, appreciated...

How are the parameters in the tank? Could be it trying to go sexual or not enough nutrients in the water column for it to consume.

Looks like you're right Marko. Dragons breathe seems to be the obvious. I trial ran a small piece to see how it would die out, it didn't turn orange, it died out straight to a light green then bleached transparent musch.

Gutted I cant DT some to a rock, my 3 tangs would have a field day.

Thanks for your reply's guys! Enjoy your day. ��
