    Hi everyone.

    I read about zoanthids expelling zooxanthellae, and I think thats what the one on the back right is doing but what are the others doing? Its a clear stringy "slime" for lack of a better word, is this normal or a sign of distress?

    Hi Reefer.

    I have no hermits, no nudis I'm aware of. Not sure about the light or parameter. Will test tomorrow and update.

    Thanks.

    yeah, taking a dump... Zoa and anemones are after all closely related.
