    Question Coral question!!

    First off Thanks to johnny for corals!!


    second.. Do corals close up at night?

    cause last night the my polyps were open and beautiful and this morning are closed..

    do they follow light pattern or something?

    also my froggy hasn't opened yet? but will give it time to adjust!!

    thanks!!

    Yes, Most corals retract their polyps at night. There are corals extend their polyps at night as well.

    Photosynthetic Corals feed off symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae. Zooxanthellae requires light to grow.

    Try to find this book... It's a great one to have.

    I know my Xenia and my anemonee (although it's a invert.) close up at night... it's a completely normal thing. About half hour after you open the lights, they should be fine

    Cool FISHERMAN

    The button polyps you got last night will close as well as the FROG SPAWN. the FROG usually takes around an hour or so when the lights come on to fully inflate. They could take a few days to adjust so just keep an eye out and don't move or touch them at all. They should make a full come back. Please keep me posted.
