Hey all, I bought this Candy frag a few days ago. It didn't look all that healthy at the LFS but I bought it anyway and we will see what happens. Over the last few days, I have noticed their is a little bit more "green" on the heads that is noticeable when the actinics are on. The water is good. I also have some polyps, Kenya Tree Coral, Feather worms, snails, Grac. Algae, and other live rock hitch hikers in the tank. I would like your opinion on the candy coral as I have never had them before and am new at keeping coral.

in the first picture, it looks a little stressed but it looks like it can make a recovery, the secont picture they look really bad, very closed up, very little flesh covering the skeleton.

are these taken at day/night? or a few days apart?

The 2nd picture was taken at night and the first during the day.
it is just closing at night then, keep an eye on it, make sure the heads are expanding each day a little, they should expand more and more if its happy, if not, try to move it higher so it gets more light. (if you dont have super strong lights that is)
