Well, a co-worker was being nice and bought me a small piece of frogspawn and a small trumpet coral. She wasn't aware that my tank needed a few more months before putting in coral. She said they were on sale for like $10 each. Sale items cannot be returned. So...I checked my numbers:
Ammonia = 0
Nitrite = 0
Nitrate = 10ppm
Phos = 0
Copper = 0
Calcium = 400
Temp = 79
Since the numbers were good and have been for quite a while, with no major swings.
I did a 2 hour drip acclimation, placed in the tank in an area of light to moderate flow, and turned off the 10000K lights. Only the Actinic were left on for about 3 hours. Now only the moon LED
's are on.
Trumpet Coral looks fine after 5 hours.
Frogspawn seems to have come out, but looks weird. It looks like its sprouting little knobs off the fingers. Some of them are swollen and have 1 - 3 knobs on them that look like the tops of the fingers. It almost looks like it's going through mitosis. Or Growing new fingers.
1. Is this normal?
2. If not, what can I do to help?
