XENIA's

WOW, I leave for a week, let my roomate take care of the tank.....feed the fish and I get home and all my rockwork is toppled over and my softies (blasto and xenias) are nearly gone. Anyone else have experience with this. How do I get my corals back healthy again, I already did a 25% water change and a phyto target feed any other suggestions.....Thanks

Sounds like you need a new roommate! What are your tank current water params?

It happens to me from time to time but usually when I am chasing something down in the tank or trying to dig something out.

What does you rock work look like?

IMO Xenia either likes your tank, and will grow no matter how hard you try to kill it. OR... It just doesn't grow at all for some people. Since it was doing well before, it should bounce right back.

How did your rock work get messed up? Seems like your roommate might have been toking it up.

That is a good one Dustin! You would think I was from the balancing act I play in my tank. My clown likes to rearrange my corals and throws my tank off balance. I have stripped it down to make adjustments so now it's bare and a balancing act. Looks weird.
Luv2reef: any pics you could share for ideas?
