Some of my zoas are not opening all the way and my candy cane has been dying off.

Same issues as I had... Check your alk levels. Actually, check cal and mag too. How's lighting, and what is temp? I also had an issue with temp
creeping up on me..

Temp is between 84 and 86. I took my fan off the sump since the weather was starting to get cooler. Just replaced my light a couple a weeks ago. I have been acclimating the tank to the new light. I have been adjusting it up once a week until i get it where i want it. Will do testing in a little while.

Yea stop altogether... Do a large 75% water change to get things back under control. I'll give you a quick story:

Had a nice 40 gallon breeder that was packed with LPS, some softies, and a couple SPS.

Started dosing.

Lost corals.

End of story.

If I could redo it, I never would have dosed, and simply relied on water changes...
