Torch Coral

Any reason why only one head is popping out? I know my torch likes i there because when i moved him on that location both heads were fully extended. Im thinking its my water as im about to change the water tomorrow morning. Just trying to see if its any other reason. Im also thinking if ph is a factor here as my ph swings from 8.1 to 8.3 during the day.

Also my light intensity is at 50% with AI hydra 26

Ph 8.3
Cal 500
Mag 1150
Alk 8.5
Nitrate 0

That isn't closed. The head evacuated. That is bare skeleton.

The evacuated head has some stringy residue and tissue hanging from it. Is this safe on my tank? Im unable to remove it since I don't have the tools for it. The other head is doing fine.

It won't be fine with those water stats !!

Calcium and Alk are well out of balance and mag is far to low

Mag needs to be around 1350

With calcium at 500 Alk should be 19.6KH !!! far to high

What salt are you using


With alk at 8.5 calcium needs to be around 420


Is the stringy stuff brown if it is google brown jelly disease if not could just be remaining tissue
