They are 250w bubls... I also doubt the bad bulb theory but I don't know what else may be the problem. I have a few frogspawns, alverpora, 3 different brains, couple acros, monti cap, scroll coral, xmas tree, xenia, several bunches of star polyps, various other polyps, 2 toadstools, a kenya tree coral, cabbage leather, a few green sinularia's, bubble coral, 15 or so acro frags
and the big acro
colony I recently purchased. All my corals seem to be ok but I just seem to have a tough time acclimating some things. Most of the various polyps I bring home must be put in the shade and gradually moved out or theyjust never open up. My scroll coral also didn't seem to happy when placed on the substrate so I moved him under a cave for a few days and worked him back out.
I"m just not sure why some of my acros bleach on the tips.....I would figure that in this deep of a tank they would be fine. Maybe it is a combo like you said...it's just kind of frustrating when I seem to be doing things right and I still encounter problems. I'll take a few more pics to see what you guys think.
, on several occasions I've picked up loose mushroom/ricordia at work that fall of rocks and I cannot get them to live in my tank. They just melt away or disapear altogether....maybe this is involved somehow with lighting?
