I'd look into the flow around the Gsp. I've had star polyps only open up under a chaotic flow and they can be pretty specific with what flow they are under.

my gsp did pretty pourly under T5's and then went INSANE under my LED's. If any coral in my tank has loved the intese light it's my gsps....

Mine grow like crazy in the shade. They don't need a lot of light at all.

Why I don't think it is a lighting issue Greg. I'd try higher flow first. Then less flow.

Agreed, I wouldn't move them, try adding a rock by it to restrict flow.

So, I did a 5 gallon water change of about 30 total gallons. Hope to see improvement tomorrow...

+1 sometimes corals may stay in a day or 2. I wouldn't worry to much

Still no good. Now a mushroom is looking bad. It's just a frag, so only one mushroom. It's usually about the size of a half dollar. Right now, it's about the size of a BB.

Should have my RedSea reef test kit delivered today. I will test and post for further advice. Thanks so much for the help so far.

That's crazy, both are really resilient. Have you checked the salinity?
