We've just bought our first 3 frags within the past couple of weeks. We've got a Kenya tree, bi-color button polyps and star polyps. The frags are all quite small due to cost restrictions. The Kenya tree seems to be doing well. Our star polyps opened the first couple days we had them and have now been closed up for the last 4 days without a sign of life
. We've tried blowing it off with a baster with no success. This was one I was most excited about due to it's bright color and reputation to grow wild. Any thoughts on this? How would I know if it's dead?
Also, our button polyps look good, but I'm not sure about their placement. Their attached to a small rock frag that sits in our LR
about 3-4in from the bottom of the tank. The polyps themselves aren't "on" the LR
as they sit a little taller than the hole the frag is in. Will this inhibit their growth?
Any other recommendations for corals that are relatively easy to keep? Our lighting is T5 bulbs. Our LFS
assured us that what we have should be plenty for any soft coral.
