Coral issue, help!

So my corals are not coming out like normal. My API KH test kit only goes to twelve drops, but I made it to 15 before it turned yellow. Have no idea what that means.

My Duncan is looking wrinkly, my galaxi is all pulled in, and my frogspawn appears to be extra skinny in the tentacles.

That is the salinity? Perimeters? Corals are a good indicator that things arent right

Salinity is 1.023, nitrate is at 15-20ppm, but I did aggravate the filter when cleaning it. Ammonia is 0, nitrite 0, don't know the ph. Using an API freshwater kit. Fish seem fine

Well i think the best thing that you can do is do a water change and try to slowly raise the salinity

Ill run out and get some premade saltwater from the lfs. Hopefully the corals won't die tonight.

Lol, first saltwater tank, have that unexplored feeling here. Freshwater, I can do all day, who can't I guess.

Get a saltwater test kit. A freshwater one won't give you the right readings I would think.
