Bleached Sunburst

Posted 05/19/2012 at 11:13 PM by Aaarrrggg

The sunburst ended up lurking in the shadows for 2 weeks, pooping out large amounts of brown stringy zooxanthellae almost daily...


I can only assume my Radion LEDs where too much of a shock for it, although I don't really get how, as it spent the majority of that time in the dark. It remained sticky and tight mouthed so I left it be to sort itself out, although I must admit I was getting rather worried about it. To my relief, it finally decided to reach out into the light a couple of days ago and I got my first good look at it under the lights.

Freshly bleached, but you can definitely make out those famous yellow tips!


Here they are together (sorry not the clearest shot... the curved glass working against me)


Thankfully the tentacles are still nice and sticky so I've starting feeding enriched PE Mysis or small bits of Silversides every day. As much as it pains me to do so, I'm going to leave the fake nem in there for the time being while I nurse the sunburst back to it's former glory.

FTS from today:
