Well, polyps look no worse, maybe even a bit better. All other corals look fine. Ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, phospate all 0. Alh 9.6 dKH, calcium 440. So, I don't think its my parameters. Unless I should be measuring something else? Gonna keep an eye on the situation, and keep my fingers crossed.

I think you will be fine. I have a coral beauty and a flame. I have never had a problem.

Hope so. I haven't actually seen the flame picking at any corals, but it's quite a coincidence that the polyps went downhill right after putting the flame in. Oh, yeah, PH is 8.2.


NEW DEVELOPMENT...

Well, he's had quite the nighttime snack of my clove polyps. Little bugger. I'll see if he touches anything else before I pull him out. Give him another day...

Anyone know how to make a good fish trap?

4 days into the "flame bugger (er, 'angel') in my reef" adventure. Other than the polyps, he's leaving everything else alone. Eat's mysis shrimp, and 'marine cuisine' fine. Still haven't given up hope!

Sounds great You may just have to avoid polyps but at least there is a ton of other corals to choose from.

Sunday night, 6 days after adding the flame, and looking great so far! The polyps are making a comback, all other corals have been left alone, and the flame is looking great!
