    Okay,

    bad news. I lost the acro. Could be a variety of things in the pico. Lack of flow, lack of light or the pico experienced a swing somewhere. Temp does fluc by 0.3 deg during the day.....

    I personally think the acro was just too stressed after going through 3 tanks in a week (Supplier,shipping, petshop & vleis pico). There was alot of new parameters & light spectrums for this poor acro to handle I guess, just because this is the MASTER PICO after all the problem not lying with me. heheheheh.:m12:

    I just feel bad for the ACRO crab that stayed behind on the dead acro frag.

    While being upset with that, i got myself a new frag too sooth the pain.

    GOLDEN LEPTASTREA: Encrusting LPS it seems Thank @'D'
