I hope they all make it. You got some goo stuff there!! And if there were a bulletproof coral out there, it would be the Kenya Tree, they may make it.

Also I might add I had a Kenya tree in my 20 long under just some piece of crap T8 light that originally came with my Aqueon 55 gallon kit. I think the tank was still not quite cycled yet too and it actually grew a little. I bet it makes it.

I feel for you Wilson. You made the mistake of "just a Kenya tree". You will now be hooked on corals, lol. Maybe not, but I started out with "just a green star polyp". I now have 7 corals plus a feather duster. The corals become more and more addicitng as time goes on. Tank looks great so far.

Ooof, they don't get really big by any means. Look like 1/32" shrimp, i guess is how you can look at the Copepods.

Alright, haven't seen any since then but ill keep an eye out.

Next question and I'm sorry for bombarding you.

I have 4 Kenya tree's, but one is like shriveled up like its bundling up for winter; he's a ll purple and not branched out at all. I've read it almost impossible to kill these guys, but he looks like he's about to do something big. Gearing up for the next step? He's not that big so it makes me wonder if he might be propagating... Does he just release a branch or something and it drifts til it finds its spot and latches on?
