You know, palm tree corals can loose all of their heads and regrow them. If you transfer it into your other tank, away from the wrasse, that's one benefit of having two tanks! It may recover as long as the base stalks are still on the rock. It isn't uncommon for them to loose all of their tops and regrow them even without anything harassing them.

You definitely aren't the first person to do that. Sorry to hear about all the setbacks lately. I know it can get discouraging.

The outlet hose. Seems like it goes for a week or maybe a few days more and the water gradually comes out slower and slower

The reactor is only a month old and this is the THIRD time I've taken it apart and cleaned it. Something isn't right or I'm not doing it right or something lol

Then you break it down and make sure there aren't any issues with the pump or hose and contact the company.
