    Default Why wont my green star polyps open?

    Hi all

    For some reason my green star polyps have stopped opening? [032.gif]

    All water params are excellent and not changed anything in the tank eg lighting, feeding etc. but i had to break the tank down to find the dreaded mantis shrimp. i had to repositioned the star polyps in around the same position but they dont seem to be opening anymore?

    Any one else experiance this and how to remedy it? i hope they are not dying?

    can take a few days to settle. if it goes on for over 4-7days then you may need to investigate but normally 2-3days they should be happy again.

    yeah its been over 7 days now but they have started to open slightly but not all of the 'mat'.

    on the other hand i have other star polyps on purple mat but they are cream in colour and they are fully out?

    confused....
