Okay, here's my video. It is .mp4 so I don't know how many of you can view it.
In order of appearance in the video, here's my corals and questions/problems with each
Candy Cane coral - Is it bleached? That's the same color as when I bought it. However, it has split multiple times since I have had it and is growing nicely.
Bubble coral - growing really nice! everything seems well with this one. Except it is growing on a plug stuck into the sand and has covered all space it has to grow. Will it continue growing off of the plug across the sand or should I cut the stick off of the plug and attach it to a rock for it to continue growing?
Mushrooms - doing great no problems
Octo/frogspawn - This usually does pretty good. No problems except it doesn't open up fully some of the time. I understand it might be a little bleached as well?
Duncan coral - This has grown 4 new heads since I've had it and it usually does pretty good. Sometimes it doesn't open all of the way up. Is it bleached?
Zoas - doing good. maybe a tiny bit of loss in color (seems dulled a little bit). I want it to spread onto the other rocks close to it but so far it's not. It has only been a few weeks in that spot though.
Anthelias - does good. sustains life. When I got it it was like 5 total stalks.. but that was like 6 months ago or longer. Why won't it grow fast like everyone says it does? Is it because it is on the sand and not attached to anything?
brain coral - seems to be doing okay. it seems duller than when i bought it.. as if the red has faded to a deep orange.
frogspawn - it is bleached. having a hard time bringing its color back, even with spot feeds (what should I spot feed it? should I move it?) however it is growing
hammer - it is fading color rapidly. only got it a few weeks ago.
green acropora - probably my most thriving coral (tie with the bubble). Vibrant color, nice growth since I got it.
favite/brain - bleaching/dulling
kenya tree - this is usually open.. figures it would be closed when I'm doing a video lol. It is growing thicker and longer and noticed a couple of new branches.
plate coral - bleached, malnutritioned. I began spot feeding with plankton, brine shrimp, and chunks of silversides. also moved it under a ledge. It inflates again (didn't use to) and still waiting for the color to come back in it.
branching hammer - one side got stung by bta and died. the other side is usually more open than that, but it is severely bleached and doesn't grow (i don't think). there is very little flow here.
One thing I did not show in the video is my thick finger leather I have in the sand bed. It used to be inflated about 2x more than it is now. Now it doesn't inflate nearly as much but still gets super fuzzy around feeding time.
Any suggestions (moving, flow, nutrition, lighting, etc?) for anything to help them thrive and grow better? Really looking forward to your input!!
