    Leather finger acting weird !

    I got a leathre finger at MASO11 and hed it for a while in Aqua's tank. I moved it to my 30g last Thursday and the finger is half a day fairly open and standing up, half a day partialy open and laying down.

    Params are ok. 0/0/10, pH arround 7.9 as per test kit.
    Light is 1x 23W daylight swirl for now.
    IceCap 250W El. coming up this week with most likely 14k MH.

    What could it be ???

    Well, I don't think test kits are accurate enough.
    Every time I tesy pH it shows the same color (7.9)
    water change water should be arround 8.2 as I understand, but the kit still shows 7.9 color.
    At the moment I cannot afford ph meter. I'm still working on my initial setup.

    Today, all day the finger is fully open (no polips yet, but fingers streched). It's first time I see it like this. I hope it stays like this.

    I think its pretty normal my finger spends most of its time lying down, its doubled its size in the last year some days it just lays there other days its up an about. Today its half erect!!!
    You could try viagra:biggrinbo
    I had the same problems with ph test kits, waste of time just take a sample of water to your lfs or water store. My ph was all over the place with the test kits got a ph mon. and it was perfect.
