Looks the way mine did before it kicked the bucket. How is the lighting/flow and how long has it been in the tank?

Nothing changed? I would do a comprehensive test just to be sure.

I think you were in on my thread with mine - it turned out to be light (too much). You also know I am new to SW so I don't have much else to go on... I do know that if there is still green in there, then it can recover.

Yup im annoyed.. Salininity is .022 or .023, hard to pick. Just did the nitrate test i will tell you the results. Nothing has changed since i put him there 1 1/2 months ago. He has a few tentacles sticking out so hopefully he is ok

Where do you have it in the tank? I have all mine about mid way in the tank with a med flow on them. They would be about 12-14 inches away from the light in my tank.

Unfortunately- once a head goes- that's it. Linda like a wall hammer- usually when the skeleton starts showing that's it for the coral.

Alright so mine just randomly died? This makes zero sence. It was perfectly fine until today. Nitrates are at 0-5. Medium flow, middle of the tank, about a frot from the light. Wow...

You win some you lose some. Sorry to hear about the coral but it makes you think and ponder on what to do next. I've been very fortunate to have my little reef run happy and healthy for as long as it has been.

Yup true. Thing is, i dont mind loosing anything as long as i know what i did wrong. I almost wish my nitrates were high, or my salinity was low just so i actually know what the heck happened. This just seems like a cheap shot because as far as i know, i did nothing wrong.
