Kenya tree coral melting.

Does anyone have an idea why my tree coral is melting?
Parameters are: salinity 1.026 nitrite 0 nitrate 0.9 Ph. 8.2

I am suspecting about his neighbor killing him. Any ideas? Thank you.

Need more info..
alk? cal? mag? levels..
tank age..
how long have you had the coral?
have you moved it?,
Also in the future please turn the blue channel of your lights off or way down.. proper color rendition is important and it can also help your camera take clearer pictures..
I really can't see enough in that picture to say if its melting or just slumped over..

Being blunt and having fun

i will send you all the kenya tree you can handle, mine is out of control. they usually sting others not visa versa. my tank runs very high nutrients and it seems to thrive that water. good luck.
