Hi Lindsay - the only reasoning I could give you is that they spent quite some time in darkness while being shipped. So, they need to acclimatize to the lighting in your tank.
This could take a week - sometimes more....

Give it chance - they should be all A-OK soon!

Hi Lindsay - I very happy for you that the Kenya Tree has now gone through it's "getting used to" cycle..... Congrats man. They grow nice and fast. I am QUITE sure that you will be pleasantly surprised with it. Give it a month or so, and then we talk again ;-)

How about some pics! ;-)

Oh, they also don't like been Boiled.:whistling:

Man, I just saw this now, not funny you:lol:. I am still pissed off as it is still my favourate Coral. And the best part is that it was not even my own doing- @#$ Chiller- But hopefully never again... Now just to find some more Kenia Trees, a whole plantation full:whistling:

Sean, that coral that I gave you that is on the rock with the blue mushrooms (the same one your green star polyps are stinging :whistling:), when that things grows up it will look a thousand times better than any kenyan tree plantation, trust me, it's a stunning coral, grows big and branches out nicely, it will be the centre piece in your tank.
