Red Cyno


As you probably know my rock sits on a solid base with sand around the edge
I placed a rock of button polyps on the substrate and a few weeks ago and now this



the rest of the tank looks like this



Gotta be because lack of flow around the rock?

Sure just do it gently and take as little sand as possible.
