    Have you change its postion and flow on it? I know that mine reacts differently under different levels of flow.

    That's weird because my clowns both host mine and they are out full and huge. I know they don't like super bright light so I would tell you to move them down, but it is obvious they they are already on the sand bed. I would try to increase or decrease water flow, and also try to spot feed them by putting a piece of Tupperware over them and injecting some marine snow under the bowl to ensure that it is able to absorb it. Hope this helps!

    Hey what kinds of flows do you guys keep your frogspawn under? I'm kind of having the same issue actually...

    Mid flow. We need to know your parameters and placement as well. Any chemicals used?

    Mine do best in lower light with low to medium flow, but they really like it if you can get them in an area where the flow moves them back and forth slowly. Also, I can always tell when my Ph drops because they look like your pic. I would slowly bring your Ph up to between 8.2-8.3.....that's assuming you didn't check your Ph with the lights off, and you waited about 4 hours with full light!? My clowns host mine as well and they stay wide open. Hope this helps

    check your calc and alk. When I got my numbers up to where they needed to be mine exploded to life, even with my clown darting in and out of them. Anyone who has seen my lil hammer, frogspawn, anchor coral garden can tell you. I can tell the diff between the two tanks I had when one or the other got low params.

    Also, I keep my ph at 8.3-8.4 and mine are in mid to low flow but in a location so when I dump phyto or marine snow it gets blasted right to them.
