    Hi all,

    My sinularia has not been extending its polyps since before the long weekend. All params have remained stable. What i did do was that I replaced my old 54w T5 bulbs to new ATI bulbs. at the beginning of lastweek. So I guess it is sulking due to light shock. What should I do now? Should I leave it be?

    I do not have pics of it sulking at the moment. Will load later.

    beginning last week to today is already 2 weeks, no point now in changing the light cycle a bit.

    Let it be, they will come right eventually

    I have changed it a bit since Tuesday. So for three days the light period has been much less. I must say I did see a little extension last night.

    I hope that they pull through.

    Thanks Riaan.
