Hi guys. I'm in search of some insight about my finger leather frag
. I got this frag
free, from the Anthony Calfo Seminar, in Lancaster PA about a month ago. It's been doing great ever since I got it. I've got a Coralife 2x65 watt PC
light fixture, as well as about 600 GPH
of waterflow from a HOB
and three strategically placed powerheads in my tank. The frag
intially came unglued from it's original piece of rock rubble, so I set it in a crevice in the rock where it wouldn't get blown off and would still get plenty of water flow. Twice, I found it on the sandbed, so I put it back but in a different spot, and it's been in this same spot for about a week and a half...again, looking perfectly normal. I was doing some tank maintenece two days ago, and noticed a small hole in my frag
, I thought maybe I was just looking at it wrong and it was growth or something, so after some consideration I let it go. One of my bulbs will not light for the past 4 days or so as well, so there is only 65 watts of lighting running to the tank. Still almost 2 WPG
, as opposed to almost 4 WPG
there was initially.
Well, I woke up this morning to find my frag
nothing but a pile of white dust on my rock. There is still one small chunk of it left, about the size of a pea. When I turned on the light this morning and spotted it, I saw a noticeably large pod or two scurry from the crime scene.
So...what happened to my frag
? Was it eaten by the pods
? Did the lack of light kill it? It was gettting plenty of waterflow I assume. I tested the water anyways, and everything checks out fine. No NH3
, and about 20 ppm
. I have a sebae anemone that is doing fine, and prospering. Any ideas?
