    Hey guys.

    Ive been looking on the net for answers but cant get a conclusive answer.

    My finger coral has got a shiny layer over it. I have found that it might be stress,to much flow,too little flow,that it does it to protect itself or that its growing.

    Hopefully you guys can tell me if it is something to worry about.


    here some pics of what it looks like

    Nothing to be concerned about Charl , most Sinularia sp do this at quite regular intervals. They tend to "shed" the outer skin and sulk for a while

    Just keep an eye on it & keep up tank maintanance
