    Yes they are... I wonder if Ashburn's red dragon is doing all right?

    RTNed, the red dragon is the tipping point where I stopped wanting to do sps until I have super stable environment and no longer swapping out my tanks, I still have some SPS in my tanks but not going to add new ones. but maybe Mark has better luck with the live food feed. best wishes @Mark B!

    Red Dragons should not be your barometer on whether or not you can keep acros. They are notoriously fickle to very subtle changes in light, flow, and alk; more so than any acro I have ever kept. I have been through three of them and have given up on them.

    True, but i also have other acros that got RTNed as well, so I'm just going to wait it out and come back again. I'm upgrading my frag tank as well so likely it's a bad idea to keep sensitive SPS at this point.

    Perhaps it's a girl? But seriously, as I understand, before I got it, it was infested with flatworms, then it went through a dip, and the tank prior to me had an Alk of 11. I think it is very unhappy at the moment It will take a miracle to get this one to pull through I think

    It's fine. It'll pull through. Yes looks like a little burnt tips from the high alkalinity but it survived the acclimation and in your tank, might as well be in the ocean! ;)

    Yeah you're right! And if there's any issues I can always return it and get my money back :eek:

    Only if you have your receipt. You have your receipt don’t you?

    My red dragon rtn’d in less than 24 hours. I was lucky that it was given to me.

    I actually had a red dragon for over a year that was doing great then STN'd while all other corals in the tank were fine. touchy species.
