Def look better! X was probably right, just a little to close to its neighbor.
Usually a water change, when done correctly, will always make things a little better. I say when done correctly because last month I tried to use up some old IO salt and it stayed chunky even after 48 hrs. of mixing with a power head. I went ahead and used it and lost my Symphodium. My trusted LFS
said that some of the chunks prob got in/on it and I burned it. It just melted away! Really sucked cause it was doing great. Luckily none of my large LPS
, or anything else was effected.
Good luck Convict
