Will my zoas reattach if I don't glue them? They are rested and all the polyps look good but will nature take urs corse and save my 5 polyps?

They detached from their original rock but that rock still grows 1-2 each week. Could it be stress or a pest that caused it to detach?

Sometimes zoas are attached to a weak skeleton piece and that piece just breaks (calcium can be brittle) by water flow or movement.

Okay, that is probably it. Thanks. I usually see a loose piece then it's gone this one just happend to be a big one.

Do you think it could survive on its own after I place it there?

My zoas close up at night... Is this normal?

And suddenly my green polyps are much brighter and seem to be doing better then my red ones now. Is this normal or is the battle changing tides? Lol

Yeah they will close up at night.

Are the green and red ones on the same piece? Each color will try to overtake the other color (just how it goes, lol).

If not, I'm not sure. What do you mean by not doing well? My red ones fade in color and just "look weaker" than the green ones. I think they might need higher lighting but I haven't experimented with it yet.

Yeah they are on the same piece... I fragged a small piece of both and those both look good.

I'm going to get some glue and frag more of the red ones off the rock.
