View Full Version : Orange Monti Question

04/24/2010, 11:57 PM
I had a friend give me an Orange Monti Digita frag after I had a slight accident and lost my frag. I had it towards the bottom of my tank and it had great color. I thought that if I moved it closer to my lights that it would be even better colored. I moved it up to my frag rack close to my lights and now it has started to fade out to just being white in color. Still have polyp extension, just losing it's orange color. Could it be that I have it too close to the light and I am accidentally bleaching it? It is a 24gal NC that I upgraded with the 3.36 upgrade. Where I am running three 36w 50/50 bulbs. It is just about 2" under the water and about 4" under the light.

If its already white...you already did bleach it. If you see polyps everywhere still thats good.

Drop it to the bottom of the tank off to the side, still in the light though not in the shadows and let it heal. It can probably take all the light you have and look great. It just cant take the increase all at once ;)
