New frags dying?

I put these into my tank 36 hours ago. They are on the sand bed acclimating to the light, but I noticed that they are getting white spots. Are they already dying?

Also, Kenya Tree has been leaning since I got it 3 weeks ago. Dead? Need a spot with more flow?

That is definitely tissue recession. How did you acclimate the corals? Some more info on the tank will help, lighting, parameters, size.

Well, it isn't from lack of lighting. Sols are great lights. Did you acclimate them to the lighting at all?

Sorry, acclimated by placing at bottom of tank during the last 3 hours if "twilight" on Thursday night. Regular day on Friday.

That might have been it. LEDs are pretty potent lighting. They might have been stressed out or even burned from not having the power ramped up over time... Might be a parameter thing too. The staghorn I would keep an eye on. For the other acro, I would either frag off the dying parts or cover it with some frag glue to stop the tissue recession.

Crap! Are there any guides as to recommended settings on these lights? Understand now about acclimation, but how much is enough and how much is too much?

since I got my led s I turn them up slowly and watch how the corals react they will tell you what they like especially if you spend as much time with your tank as I do

I have it dialed down to 50% of normal which is about 20/30/40 for the three lights.

This hobby is getting more and more expensive!!

yes this is not a cheap hobby in no means but the enjoyment and coloration pays for it in the long run
