I hope our corals dont die! We tried to shake all of the sand off them, will that be enough??

And ya that clown is a beast! Haha

Yep, just shake off the sand and it should be ok. I find at least one coral a day covered in sand from my evil goby. lol

I've lost a few corals though this way so you have to be vigilant and make sure you dont leave one under sand by accident, i missed some of mine being covered and thats a sure recipe for death. :-(

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I woke up today to corals covered in sand and I dont even have a goby! I think I had a couple brownouts and one of my PHs revered direction. I'm sure things will turn out, those are pretty hardy coral.

Ehh I hate when my koralias do that. It is useful for cleaning them though.

That' stinks! I woke up today and saw a bunch of micro bubbles in my tank, the return pump was running a little low. I really need an ato.

Hows the corals doing now?

Oh that's good. I'm sure it will all heal up eventually. I would use some epoxy next time you attach everything, it helps a lot.

I'd say just let it run its natural cycle that's about it or just add a raw piece of shrimp
