Overall Tank Problem

I turned my lights on to see a mess. There were loads of bristleworms small - large. Then if use remember that coral that had not opened, a part of it has gone white which I am guesing means that it is dead ? Also alot of my mushrooms have moved so I tried to put them on the rocks but they were all slimy and just fell of straight away.

A good thing (I think) is that there is this strange little shrimp. If use are familiar with freshwater shrimp they are like a transparent / white colour however this one has brown and red stripes accross its body and one of its claws is big especially compared to the other.

I think I am going to get loads of new live rock and give up on corals for a time being, as they dont seem happy.

In another one of your threads, regarding mushrooms, I asked about water quality. You said it was fine. I would be checking again. If you are doing your own testing, you might want to doublecheck the results with a store or another test kit. Your water quality is most likely, not fine. Please post readings, accurate numbers so that we can help.
