Large Stoney polyp and small Stoney polyp. Lps don't require as much light or perfection of water as SPS (but there are some harder Lps to care for of course)

Okay, well the nem's not looking so hot. I have fed him twice with formula one cubes, about 1/8th of a cube each time, minced up in a syringe with an ounce of tank water. He gobbled it up.. but still not looking hot. He also moved to an area with low flow. What should I do for him?



And the xenia, is this bleaching on the tips of the left one? And also is the sea cucumber reef safe? LFS said it was back when I bought it. I know about it being potentially toxic when it dies but that's not what i'm talking about. Will it harm my corals?



The GSP appears to be doing really well. Haven't fed the gsp or xenias with plankton yet.

Try feeding the nem silversides. It's a little more substantial and then you only have to feed them once every couple o days. The Xenia is like the gsp as far as light and water flow. So try moving it up and into a medium light and water flow area. If not med-high water flow. The cucumber is reef safe but if they die or become powerhead food they'll crash your tank. Just like if your nem dies or becomes powerhead food it will crash your tank.

Okay thanks. Should I try to move the anemone to a higher flow area or leave him where he's at?

They will move to where they want.

+1 to they'll move where they want. They go to where ever in the tank they feel like they get the best water flow and light. Just think of them as another fish

Cool, good to know. Just gave it a piece of silverside and it's chowing down. I think it might be too large for him (about 1/2 of a 4" silverside).

We'll see what happens.

Ya that might be a little big. Try 1" pieces until he gets bigger and can handle more. I always would by the smallest bag of silversides I could find because 1 silverside is a weeks worth of food if you feed every other day

Yeah I bought a four ounce bag. I think it'll last a long time!

Today I'm going to chop off just a head (about 1") and feed it to him. Overall though he is looking better and the other corals are doing great too.

So happy!
