With the new additions, I've spent lots of time looking over my tank. I realized that I'm not getting polyp extension out of my meteor shower corals. I'm going to move them out of as much light as I can. Thinking that there is just too much light in my tank for it...I mean, sps in the sandbed doing fine...medium light coral...IDK. Any input on this would rule.

Wow, that looks amazing. Every Lps I've ever had has had issues with exactly the same thing, too much light. It's almost like their nps..

I didnt think anything of it because they looked likr this in the store...but pics online shows pretty noticable extension. My other lps are fine, flowerpot is on the top level and acans are doing amazing. Read some threads in other forums that have said these are less medium light and more low light. Well see.

Quick update before work.
Bird's nest and the 2 broken pieces



My Marshall Island Latana got kinda buried in sand. I got it out of the sandbed, but it started to bleach out in a spiral the entire way up it. Glued over the bleaching in hoping of saving one of my fav corals.

My 2 meteor showers, in the sandbed but still no real polyp extension.


What is the capture ability of acan lords? This one seems to be eating one of my blue legged hermits...

AND the BTAs

Beautiful Birdsnest Hank!! Nice size too!!
I think the hermit was probably just a molt that may have gotten blown onto the Acan. Don't think they could grab a live one.

I don't think it was alive either...either molt or I lost one. Think I should remove it or any clues as per the meteor showers?

Yeah, I would remove it from the Acan, it can't help anything.
With the Cephastreas, not really sure, I have mine in a pretty well lit area, and it's spreading nicely. I've read they are a low-med light coral, but I placed it before I knew this. And it's always looked good? Its under T5, but 780 watts of it, and it's about 10" under the surface of the water. Wish I could help more, but I don't know.
Here's a pic of mine as of today,

Attachment 107666

Original frag is the middle raised section, been in tank about 6 months.
