Stubborn Hammer Coral
I recently purchased a Hammer Coral and it's a pretty decent size which i have in a picture below. It was opening pretty well and then it started to close, so i tested my water and everything tested fine and my light is 5.5 watts per gallon. It's just bothering me since i don't know whats wrong.
My checked out to:
After a week:-(
what kind of lights, how close is it to the lights, what kind of flow
1 32 watt t5 and 1 130 watt PC and mid-level placement and low and moderate flow. it doesn;t get direct waterflow.
hmm. what is your ALK and MAG levels?
how big is the tank, how often do you do water changes and how much?
my alk was a little high last i checked but i dont know my mag
i honestly dont know the problem, you can try moving it into another spot in the tank and see how it does there for a week or so.
magnesium, alk, and calc all work hand and hand. USUALLY ( not always ) if one is out of whack another isnt right. your going to want to invest in a good mag test kit ( i recommend salifert ) and a product to use to dose it.
Ya, i've done that so i hope it helps. I'm beginning to suspect a jelly infection so now i can get into work to buy some dip. thats my only suspect.
