View Full Version : Sunburnt coral?

Short backstory - I went on vacation and left my office tank to my assistant to look after for the week. She's done it a lot in the past, so no big deal.

We had a power outage that reset my lights to factory settings, which killed my custom sunrise/sunset program.

I'm not sure what she heard me say, but it wasn't turn both channels on 100%and leave them on 24 hours a day for the next week.

I have a mint green pavona right at the top of the tank. It didn't look very good when I got home. Even though I reset the lighting schedule, it has continued to get progressively worse at about 3 weeks past when I got back.

It's fully encrusted to the rocks, so I can't just move it. Should I frag some of the branches that have even the slightest green tint to them? Leave it all alone and see what happens?

It's my only SPS coral, so I'm a total noob with them. Any thoughts appreciated.
