acro health


I am having a hard time determining if my first acro frags are doing well. They have been in the tank for 1 week, all levels are great, under 250 14k mh, with very good water movement. I have yet to see any PE, how do you know if they are doing alright, what do I look for? This is my first try at sps I have been mostly softies and lps for 5 years.
not able to post pics. Any help would be great
thanks chris

Just my opinion, so please do not jump me people... But, if they are doing very bad they lose color very quickly and turn white. if doing just so-so they turn brown. if doing OK they keep color. if doing well they keep color and you see PE.

A few of mine have grow fast and thrive, and during the daylight hours I have never seen PE... "Hears the big BUT" --- They do have PE at night!

I agree. One of my acros has PE during the lights on period, but the other one never extends them out until lights go off.
Strange indeed.
