    Hi! I added a rock encrusted with brown star polyps three days ago to my 300L tank. The first day all the polyps were extended, but the next morning they retreated and was just wondering if I had done something wrong. I followed correct procedures as far as introducing it to my tank.

    Thank You!!

    Could be light shock.Place them at the bottom of your tank and out of very strong flow and see if this helps.

    O and WELCOME

    Thanks Evo R. I must admit that I did place it quite high up in the tank, so will move it lower as soon as I get back home tonight. Oh and do you perhaps have any advice on pulsing Xenia care. I'm interested in purchasing one.
