I dont know about bat fish. But I do know that cowfish, of box fishes are NOT reef friendly. They are cousins to the puffer fish family. I believe everything in anenomemans tank is bonafied reef safe.

Do you dose Iodine? I had the same problem once, after I stopped dosing Iodine. (Someone at my LFS told it was dangerous) I stopped for a while, and my polyps and Mushrooms stopped growing and nearly went extinct. I was freakin... I was reading an article after about 2 months later, that recommended the use of Iodine, and I restarted the dosing. Everything has come back to life. I did nothing with my lights, however as we all know, lighting is very important as well.

I add Iodine manually, 10ml (Kent Marine Tech I) per 50 gals once a week. I put that amount in a cup of tank water and then pour that into the tank.

TECH I - Add two teaspoons (2 capfuls or 10 ml) per 50 gallons tank capacity every week for three weeks. Reduce to half dosage in the 4th and subsequent weeks, unless you can test the level. Add directly to the system in an area of good water movement. Do not mix with other supplements outside the aquarium. Do not use with Poly Ox, other oxidizers, or ozone! ( These are the directions from Kent Marine)

I hope this helps...
