All is well. I lost a snail, but everything else is great.

Thanks. I'm hoping it is okay. It's been doing great and is beginning to spread nicely. Just shut down for a couple of days.

As of last night, no. If nothing today, then I'm going to do a water change:

Will do. I can't imagine doing anything that would cause me to lose that one but nothing else. I test regularly for ammonia, pH, nitrate and nitrite. I also have the RedSea A, B, and C elements. I haven't added any because I haven't tested for any of it. I'm expecting the test kit Friday.

There's been times when mine have acted like that too, what type of lighting, and what sort of lighting do they have?

If nothing else is acting up in your aquarium I'd think its something of then water quality since GSP is very hard to kill

The light fixture is a total of 28 watts: 1 14 watt T5 actinic blue and 1 14 watt T5 10,000K.

The tank is a 25 gallon and the frag is about smack-dab in the middle of the tank. There is no shade, it has full light for about 12 hours a day.

I have mine under 120w LEDs, approximately 10" from the top of the water and 16" from the light fixture. I have it slightly positioned in the shaded area. Once I placed them here they have never acted up once.

Also they have tripled in size since adding them about 2.5 months ago.
