    Green Serpent - Falling Apart?

    I've got a 20" Green Serpent Star and just recently he has been eating less and the tips of his tentacles have been looking withered. Just today i found a 1" piece of one of his tentacles has broken off. Is he sick or, maybe molting?

    My parameters are:

    Ammonia - 0
    Nitrite - 0
    Nitrate - 0
    Phosphate - 0
    Salinity - 1.026
    PH - 8.4
    Alk - 10
    Ca - 420
    Mg - 1320

    Params look fine, but when stars start falling apart, that's usually the end of them.

    I agree with Pearson its not looking to good for your star. There must be something he is not happy with.

    Well, I put him back in the sump of the DT. (I had moved him to the new, FOWLR) and he seems to be doing better! I thought he would be happier in the larger tank, but, it seems he's more comfortable with the sump. Maybe the FOWLR was to clean for him?
