You know these are the brown polyps that I got for free and they turned out so nice. I usually do not like brown corals but these are a nice green under acintic and their shape is nice.
It was when I bought my muschroom coral. A little polyp got kicked up from under the sand. It was 2 polyps all closed up and I asked the LFS
guy if I could have it. He asked why it is dead? I said hey, it may open up and you did not even know it was there? A month later it has over 6 polyps attached and the little runner!
The hair algae is getting much better and I believe it is because of my diligent PWC
's and reduced feeding. AND, for any one who says that Emerald Crabs do not eat HA, well I have been watching 3 eat it for 5 days! They also pick at the little patch of bubble algae I still have but they are working on the hair more. And, I think they are cool little critters.
