LPS frogspawn ?

Just acquired a frogspawn frag about a week ago, what is the typical tentacle extension length that shows that it thriving and happy?

Its in a 29aga, 6 inch from surface running led array with PH pointed at it.
Another factor, theres a mated pair of clownfish hosting it...


USAGE NOTE: NEVER mix salt in an aquarium containing animals.

Its also an LPS and most prefer a lower light level.
You would have to slowly acclimate it to that place after a few months of careful adjustments.
Seriously good idea to lower that coral to the sand and let it adjust to the system for at least a couple of weeks to a month before you slowly start to move it to where it currently is.

Is it centrifugal or centripetal force?

Lower lighting, medium flow. Don't have pumps directly on it.

How are you doing your water changes? Mine don't retract during a water change, but I do water changes via the sump.
