    Hallo guys.
    I just noticed this white stripes on my elegance coral. Has anyone seen it before or something alike? [​IMG]

    Hi @Krappie, I have not notice that, how long have you had it for? I could be wrong but it seems a bit bleached.

    That elegance is definitely bleached and thus you are seeing the white. What lighting are you using?

    Here is a PIC of mine. You can clearly see its bleached in front! It kept shifting that part underneath a rock piece, so it did not get any light! Moved it the weekend to a more open piece in the Tank!!

    Do you guys target feed them at all? I target feed once a week when I feed my anenomes and he seems to be doing really good, does catch food as well when I feed the tank,

    As you can see he seems very happy

    It catches what ever I feed during the week, Mysis, krill, brine, flakes. once a week I take lace fish and target feed the left over once I have cut it up for the anemone. You must try feed a bit more meaty food.
