y i think thay are dieing is from the fact thay wont open up. it has been almost 3 weeks and nothing the perpole it starting to tern green from alge growth from lack of movment. im starting to git fed up with this perticulr polyp. i have spent to much on them just to see nothing happen and die. the rock is about 5 pounds and is sterting to grow alge over the polyps matting. my 6 pound shelf rock took a week and it has probluy 2000+polyps on it. im at a complet loss. and on anther note how do you control alge in a tank were the fish love small inverts? i have 3 urchins and that cany keep up.

What kind of lighting do you have in the tank because if alge is growing that fast you might want to change up your lights from what i read the K value of the bulb is really important anything over 10000 is betting two much in the blue spectrum which alge thrive off of. Also how tall is you tank and how many watts per gallon are you putting in the tank are all good things to look at.
