Could it have been a temperature spike? My heater was insufficient for the cold we had, tank got down to 73F for almost a month. Bought a new heater and over a few days brought it back to 77-78F. I wonder if that set part of the soft coral die back off.

Not in my case. I keep it pretty steady. I don't think it's dropped more than 2 degrees. Even so, if it was the temp, wouldn't you think the acropora would be the first to show signs of stress?

Dary's tank!

I read that soft coral colonies "reboot" themselves unlike hard corals. They don't have an indefinite life span like hard corals. The trigger is what is being debated by many studies. Could be iodine or other factors that causes a colony to crash. Maybe a combination of factors. Acros tend to be slower reacting than soft corals are.

After kicking things around for the last couple of years i decided that i would buy myself a gopro camera for my up coming trip back to hawaii at the end of next month.., i love the ziplines and figured this might be an easier way to film the rides than holding my little sony cameras., i usually use these cameras in a underwater housing when ever we go snorkeling., this year ill try out the gopro and will see how it stacks up. I decided to just try taking a couple shots of my tank from both the outside looking in and from holding the camera in the tank itself ., heres a couple of samplesClick image for larger version

I did. The gopro is limited in the fact it doesn't zoom and macros are a bit hard without a viewfinder. I have the clip on monitor that helps. But who can beat the flexibility? I wore a full face type mask and had a clip on the top for the GOPro.
