Powder blue and flying Zoos...

Recommended Posts

  • SRC Member

Recently my powder blue tang had aquired this nasty habit... Ripping apart my zoos colony. <_<

Polyps and pieces of polyps is flying ard my tank man. And the fish is even strong enuf to topple a few of the larger colonies i place on the rocks.

I tot Zoos are like poisonous?! How come the PBT seemed to like chewing at it so much? Anyone have similar problem?

Heard of tangs attacking pratas and other LPS.. but its kinda weird that mine left them alone and home in on those darn zoos. :lol:

My blue tangs also have this habit in attacking on the zoos, prata & cynnarina causing them too strees to open up & some even die off. :angry:

They tend to attack when i feed the corals, my tangs can never be satisfy & always keep eating. Think my corals cant even have their meal properly. :(

A best way is to get the tangs out else there goes the coral.

Try to feed coral when the light just came on. or just off for 1 hour. Tang will be dizzle then.
