Duncan Coral Closed Up
Posted 07 December 2009 - 02:35 PM
My duncan coral has been in the tank for over a month and grew 3 new heads and has always been open and huge, but just recently it has closed up completely. I did a 10 gallon water change to replenish calcium and remove some phosphates.
I spot feed about once a week with uncooked shrimp pieces. It's under 4x54W t5's and 2x200W MH's, but they are only on for 2 hours a day.
I am thinking the phosphates may be contributing, but all of a sudden? I am getting a new phosphate remover this week (my rowaphos is about a month old). May start running some chaeto in a hob in the sump too.
Tank stats are:
phosphate: 0, but a little cyano so it is probably being used by that
Do you think an iodine dip will help revive it? Any help would be much appreciated. PS there is a green duncan coral about 4 inches from it that is doing fine.
