It's only been a week man. SPS take weeks to change.

I bought some SPS frags on EBay. They came in bleached. I placed them in my frag tank and they recovered completely, but it took two months!

I think it's going to take more than a couple days.

Definately takes time sometimes months for sps to recover stable params will be key along with lighting

PO4 is .04 and NO3 is .50 still trying to raise it to 1-2ppm but things are still going in the right direction. I have also adding 8ml of Energy A and 8ml of Energy B by Red Sea every day. Colors are def looking better!

Good to hear a testimonial on the Red Sea stuff. Never tried it myself. Thanks for the update.

I swear by this pcture and how white the top side of the coral is and how dark the underside is. It has to be an issue of to much light?



I think i might run 4 bulbs for 6 hours instead of running all 6. Run 2 for an hour cut off run for for 6 hours cut off and cut 2 back on for an hour.

It's not a matter of too much light, but quite possibly a matter of too much light too soon. Did you start it low in the tank?

That coral has been in the tank since June of last year. But, yes when I got it I started it out on the bottom and moved it up slowly its about half way in the tank.
