    My Water is testing fine

    is it normal for a coral to close up even if it's not night time??

    Could it be a fish or just a change in water temp or water movement for them to do this?

    My colt coral is small now like he is asleep was fine when I got home?

    Thanks

    Vatso dont really understand your post but taking my own conclusions:

    Firstly "water is testing fine" could mean a LOT of things

    Secondly colt corals, placement feeding etc, will have an impact..pic could help

    Thirdly...corals do not "feed" the whole time , just like us they get "full" and stop , so yes they could retract even with lights on

    Thanks FransSny

    That makes sens - all it is doing is like going to be early is all - my pin cousins do that as well from time to time.

    so light on does not always mean open corals

    vatso , I gave a quick and easy explanation, without a bit more info we will have trouble assisting.

    So if you can give more info on setup, placement, params, etc please do
