Issue with Green Torch?
My Green Coral Torch looked funny last night. It has been fine ever since I got it, but late last night I looked and one of the heads looked very odd.
Picture #1 and #2 show the Coral Torch current state (As of late last night)
Picture #3 shows the Coral Torch from a previous picture so you can see a healthy state
Picture #4 is to show current state of overall tank, All other Corals are healthy.
(To be updated this evening. Noticed this very late last night after a 14 hour day.)
that may be normal. did you change anything in the tank or threw some food in it? sometimes the tenticles grab food and close down to feed. or sometimes they get irretated by one of the live stock. how long has it looked that way? the torch also closes down when lights are out too. my guess is there was food or lights off because the hammer is in the same family and require about the same water quality and lighting needs.
Thanks for helping out. The lights have been on for about 75% of their cycle at that point. I dont know how long it was like that, I was gone all day, noticed this at 11:30, took pictures and went to bed.
I fed only a few minor flakes for Clowns/Anthias sparingly. (Typically feed frozen Brine or Mysis Shrimp)
what does it look like after lights on for a few hours?
Well the night I noticed it, the lights were on for about 4 hours thus far, and it was really retracted. Pictures did not do it justice.
Oddly enough, last night it was fine. Looked normal. Goes to show you how weird these animals can be....;-)
its possible it was eating, bumped, or it wasnt liking something. might be a good idea for a small water change. you also never mention any of your water params, flow, lighting, and so on.
i personally would offer other foods then flake or brine and i suggest using selcon and a few drops of garlic in the food too if you can. anthias prefer to be fed a few times a day.
just keep an eye on both the hammer and torch. if you see both going south at the same time something is wrong assuming you are not feeding or no lights out.
Now totally stupid question here, but would fish eat part of it? is there such a thing?
