Corals not happy?


Zoes and a pagoda were in my 120 and not happy, put them in the 55 and very happy. now back in the 120 and not happy.
not happy= no extension.
all soft corals and star polyps are doing great in the 120.
i do have a Singapore angel in the 120, but have never seen it nip.
what could be going on?

While I can't confirm with zoas but I know LPS going from lighting to another particular the jump your describing, can definately have an effect on polyp extension for sure until fully acclimated which can take weeks to months. If it opens at night or more when actinic supplementation on yet not with the daylights then that IMO is playing a big role.

Perhaps if you left the 120 alone for more than a week without changes to inhabitants, lights, chemistry, skimmers, overflow, the tank could finally stabilize and you would quit having problems with it.

same skimmer and over flows for over a year.....all i did last month was take rock and few fish out.....i did add the MH (didnt know that was a reef crime), but the cup was in the 120 before and did not do well with VHO....i put it in the 55 and in 2-3 days it was full out...........thats why i asked the Q not for your personal dig. but you do have a point, tanks do need to "stabilize" and i plan on that.....some day.

Let's face it, that tank has had sooo many changes posted here on the forum. This was not a dig. I personally feel your torturing the animals you put in that tank. Please for the love of God, leave the tank alone in its current configuration, do not add or change lights, skimmers, fish, corals etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc and just let the tank stabilize for a few months. I do not think I was the lone voice of reason telling you this.

Ultimately it is your tank and you will do what you want but really, if you want to post on the board about this stuff and the problems you are having, then you are opening yourself up to constructive criticism. I think most of the group will agree, you need to leave the tank alone and let it stabilize.
