After acclimating for some time, there should not be much of a trace of LFS water left I'm thinking. Even so, you should be able to lift the coral out of the acclimation container and have it in the main in a half second. Not seconds IMO.

Just think, an hour's worth of new water dripping on top of the old, then pouring off the top (keep the coral still submerged), and adding more new water, should allow you to submerge a small bag or something into the main.

Well, it's home and in the DT. It has 6 heads and has started to extend its tentacles already. Not all the way but it's getting there. Thanks for the help...

i've exposed plenty of them to air. i don't think that's accurate.

Thanks Doug. I didn't think so but with everything I like to post and get a consensus then make my decision from there.

Steve

oh...i hear ya.
someone mentioned brown jelly disease earlier, and i just wanted to mention that no one has figured out a cause for this problem, but what i will tell you is if you see a head start to close up and then show signs of brown jelly disease( which you can imagine is a brown jelly-like substance covering the flesh) frag the head off immediately, and discard it. it spreads very quickly.

btw, that is a very nice torch. it's actually sold as an "ultra colored" torch. i hope you have good luck with it.

Thanks very much. I'm very happy with it. I always pictured my marine tank having something waving in the current and I've not been able to take the smile off my face. And the colours with the moon lights on blew me away.

Thanks again to all of you. Not sure how far I would have come without all your help...this website and all the good people have truly made this foray in saltwater a lot smoother than I thought.

Very nice Mike. I like it a lot.

Thanks Mike. Just wondering how much flow you have going over it? I'd say mine is about a medium indirect flow over the top. Also do you feed it specifically? If so how much and what do you feed it?
