loss of color

I recently redid my entire system. all my messing around caused an ammonia spike, lost my xenia and acros. Most of my zo's were very unhappy for a bit. The water is fine now, some zo's are fine, others look healthy but have lost their color. There are a few that I don't expect to recover at all. Will the the ones that lost their color regain the old color, or do I just have a lot of dull zo's now?

Once you get your parameters straightened out they should return to their normal state... I've had similar things happen, and the worse thing about it was that the growth slowed to non-existance for about 6 months... But everything eventually recovered...

Not worth the drive really... There is the Coral Reef and The Aquarium if you're driving through Knoxville...

There used to be an awesome shop called Ocean's Inside up Bristol way, but it closed last year...

We are going to have a Frag Swap June 14th... If you're interested in coming check out the ETRC forum or PM me for more info...

I need to get with the Tri-Cities club and see what they want to do...

You might want to add vitamin C, to help them along a bit. See the thread on this.
