Okay, a few weeks ago my new green walled hammer had brown jelly disease so I dipped it and other than the new empty spot it was fine. It has been opening up and looks awesome under my LED
's. But lately I've noticed daily it get smaller and smaller. Seems polyps are disappearing daily from the edges. I noticed a blue legged hermit eating some algae off the skeleton, which is normal. BUT LAST NIGHT after the lights went out, I saw the hermit actually ripping polyps off the edge!!! I doubt they were decaying polyps or I would have noticed them before since I've been keeping my eye on it. I noticed it was ripping away at 2 polyps. The green tips were already gone when I looked, and it was eating the lower portion.
I shined a light on it and it walked away. Is this normal? Maybe this explains why I've lost a hammer in the past. If I place the crab in chamber 2 with chaeto and live rock will it survive there?
