I meant corals, not colors. My other corals look fine. They are open and have good color.

That's hard to say. Not necessarily. PH is a bit high also. Are you getting decent flow with that HOB filter?

I am getting a variety of flow spots with this filter. There is high flow in the middle and upper part of the tank. Medium flow on the middle sides of the tank, and lower flow at the bottom sides of the tank. I Also have it on the lower flow option now, so I can increase flow.

It must be aerating the water well. I'm not saying to increase flow...was just curious.
I still vote for the lugols/iodine dip. Zoas seem to respond well to it.

I cannot find any lugols solution locally, so I have to order it. Any home remedy solutions? Or should I go ahead and order the lugols?

It's probably the same thing. Does it have instructions for use as a coral dip?

Nope, no instructions for a dip. Also, nothing on the iodine concentration.

I have the lugols ordered and it will be here Thursday. I hope that since it has looked the same for this long it will be ok for a few more days.

I got the dip solution this last Thursday. I followed the instructions and put the zoa back in slightly less flow and a little less light spot.

It has not changed a whole lot. It is a bit more inflated and and it opens enough to see the Zoas face, but still no skirt.

How long can a zoa be closed and live?
