Thanks Soul!


Figured the stylo was still alive with it'spolyps out, but the SSC and teal acro lost all flesh and had not seen any polyps in days. Also when taken out of the water, no slime. In my experience if a coral has no slime when out of water, it is dead.



Stylo I have moved lower in the tank(although I think light and flow had nothing to do with it now), and seems to be recovering. The bottom is starting to purple up again, but the entire thing is stark white.

Stinks with the ssc and acro but it happens to the best of us. Sometimes stress of move and slightest difference in water parameters is all 8t takes.

With the nitrates coming back in line I'm sure the stylo will recover. That coral has been through a lot and is still kicking

And I can't keep LPS... That beautiful giant gleaming elegance is a shrivled ball of flesh that is slowly receding and growing algae

Funny how different people are so challenged with different things growing in their tanks. I probably still have too high of flow, and you probably have too little or something like that. Who knows.

I have the most trouble keeping BTAs and then it would be frogspawn and torches. I have other LPS' that do great though. No idea why.

Trachyphyllia are the ones that die in my tank. I have a small frag of maze brain that is doing great, but big open brains, just die.

gold torches, gonipora, and a select few are my issue corals.

I have the most issues with copperbands though. I cant seem to keep them alive no matter what I do.
