Reply To: Tigers tail laying on bottom


She is still doing fine. Currently hanging out on the cord to one of the powerheads. One of her favorite spots.

I am currently also dealing with a massive hair algae outbreak due to I think the additional coral food I’ve been using as I’ve added 4 chili corals but am slowly getting it undercontrol. Increased clean up crew, longer refugium time, etc. So maybe they are related?

I feed mysis twice a day and while she never seems to eat while I am watching I always make sure to drop it over her. The fish catch some of it while it’s falling but I always make sure some of it lands around her. She watches it and 20 minutes later it’s all gone. I’ve had her a while and this is nothing new. I also threw tig pods and gammarus amphipods in there a while back that I know are breeding as my mandarin and pipfish have been going strong for over a year and don’t eat the mysis.

So whatever it was seems to have passed. I will keep watching closely
