    Hi guys,
    For some reason my cabbage coral is not opening for the last week or so.
    I had to move it as my nemmie was growing a bit too close to it...I think it was irritated like mad...(the cabbage coral that is)

    So reasons on what could have caused the sad cabbage:
    1. It's still a bit irritated - as I can see a bit of "slime" on it.
    2. He does not like the new spot - But that's going to be a problem if this is the case - i don't have space to put him somewhere else....

    What is the best conditions for the cabbage coral in terms of flow, light et cetera.

    I have moderate flow on it, it is also high in my tank, but it's only under 54 w and 80 w T5's...

    I'm not sure about my water parameters.. But all my other corals and fish are VERY happy...
    I must get new test kits again...later...not now....

    I've tried to blow some of the slime of, but damn - that stuff just don't want to come of that easily...
