Duncan are a hardy coral. Sometimes with proper conditions and no changes they will fully retract for a day and act like nothing happened the next. I have 2 Duncan in my reef right now that do that when they feel like it, but are colorful and growing like weeds all g with the rest of the tank. Hopefully whatever went on that upset you has passed and you have control of your tank. All will work out in the end.

Hi! I'm following, but haven't said al lot yet. Enjoying your thread.
That looks like pockets of air or algae to me. I get them along the wall and take an unused toothbrush to brush them out. Has never caused me any water problems after doing that, and it looks so much better. And it only takes a Couple minutes to get rid of them.

Thank you sounds good to me. Shall do that today.

Noticed some bright green stuff in the tank. Probably cayno since it appeared overnight. Water looks a little green

Edit: bright green stuff is difficult to remove

That would be an algae bloom. This is what they market uv sterilizers for to prevent. Restrict lighting, reduce feeding.

Thank you! The green haze seems to have disappeared with one day of lights out. Hard green algae is still on the rocks.

My bf forgot to tell me that he bought a fish for me while I was on vacation. It died and he never took it out of the tank... and I never knew it was there!

In other news I found a teeny starfish in the tank... which is unusual because I never bought any live rock.

*cries*

The only rock that I didn't have glued down fell hard today during a water change.

My Duncan lived/lives on this rock. Duncan fell on his head. I'm pretty upset about it. His stem is bent. He is covered in mucus.

We will see how he recovers.
