The multicolored sand polyups that I got a month ago don't seen to be doign very well. They are alive but jsut not looking great.
I can't figure out if it is a flow issue or a lighting issue. My water parameters are ok and my bubble coral and some mushrooms are going great.
I have the sand polyups located higher up in my tank and they are sort of in the flow from the skimmer which is a HOB
. I have a 10 gallon with a 96W powerquad on it. So I am not sure if they are gettign too much light and therfore not fully coming out or extending themselves- or maybe they are in too high of a flow area and that is the reason they are not lookign so great.
Some of them stay hidden and don't even open up all that often. Others that are open are not really extended or jsut don't look great. Yet there are others that look fine.
Strange thing is that I had a few of these polyups break away from the main cluster. They ended up stuck between a rock and the sand sort of under the bubble coral. Not directly under it but in a shady area near to it. These 2 polyups are doign great. I think they are in both a lowe flow and lower light area so they are always fully extended and looking great. they ae actually already multiplying.
What do you guys think I shoudl do with the other polyups? Move them??? Or move flow soemhow? Or leave them be?
