Do you target feed them with turkey baster. If so mysis , brine or cyclpeze will work. I only feed mine once or twice a week. Here is a pic of mine I took this morning.



Even though ideally 0 is the best 20 on nitrates is not the end of the world. If you are at 20 and then doing PWC it should be well below what it`s supposed to be. Do you have a wet dry or emporer bio wheel?

i do target feed them with a pipette. i have been feeding them every other day the same frozen cubes as i feed my fish. today i went to the lfs and bought some zooplankton.

i don't have a biowheel. just the liverock for biological filtration and i have one of those filter socks in the sump. i also have a protein skimmer.

one more question i forgot to ask. i read that they prefer low lighting. i have them sitting on the bottom of my tank, but i run two 50/50 power compacts (total 260 watts). is this too much light for them?

They are low light corals and I have mine under some LR. Try to shade it some under some LR or coral.

I`m not sure but at least you`ll be able to rule that out as the reason. I was going to say make sure it`s laying on the sand but I looked at you pic and it already is.
