    the same as actinic, just the light is purple instead of blue - resulting in crazy looking corals!

    Like so:

    Check the color of the corals - much more vivid than regular actinic

    Are you sure that hes eating them? that sounds very strange - I have a lawnmower blenny and he just sits on them sometimes :p

    Maybe he is eating algae off them? otherwise, try make a small frag rack somewhere high in the tank, to let the zoas open and grow a bit, then put them back down like 2 months later....

    it has to be the lawnmower,only have bengaai cardinal,african clown,red leg hermit and shrimp in the tank.lawnmower hovers around the corals all day.
    think il raise them rather,until they bigger.

    Does your clown look like this:
    [​IMG]

    If so it is a wrasse and not a clownfish :(

    It is also possible that your hermits and/or blenny are just irritating the zoas so that they are constantly closed? (moving to a frag rack solves this)

    or too much/little flow?

    Not only does Fiji Purple make you colours lookd, but also encourages growth. The bulb requires about 14 days to kick into full power.

    depending on the length of the stalks will show you how much light and flow they need,

    long stalks usually need high light and high flow whereas short stalks will be okay from low flow and low light up to medium flow and high light
