Hello everyone, i just got my internet back since hurrican Ike hit, i was out of power a couple of days but everything in my tank made it just fine.
my xenia coral ive had for a while now had been doing great but just a couple of days ago after a water change, it now looks dehydrated.
the only thing thats changed in my tank is the salinity, from .24 to .26 which i brought back down to 24 and trying to keep it that way again, did my xenia just loose some water?
it does not pulse anymore, its trunk, and branches look very skinny, it used to be fat and plump and pulsing non stop.
on a side note it has recently spawned some new ' pups ' all around its base, there are little xenia polyps covering the main rock.
the only thing that i can think of is the high salinity or the recent addition of an epoxy i placed in the tank to cover a hole where some aptasia was growing.
good news though is that my yellow polyps are splitting and i have some new full boom polyps in just the past few days.
one last thing, i have been watching my damsel fish and my blenny eat copapods off my glass, now i dont see pods
anywhere, not even in my fuge where im having a red slime probem, does red slime kill copapods ?
