    I noticed today my acropora sp is only extending its polyps very little if at all, and seems to be sending out mesenterial filaments.

    Any idea what this is in response to? chemical warfare? or is it just feeding? should i do anything?

    I am not running carbon at the moment

    kh - 8dkh
    ca- 450ppm
    mg 1450ppm

    All other sps are fully extended.

    :whistling: i did recently just one frag as a test.

    But i did run some carbon last night this morning while the lights where off, polyp extension was good and much less filaments. @viper357 where is my mail????

    This seems to be a response after feeding the tank.
