I would lower you temp some. Kenya Tree is one of those corals that it either likes your system or it does not. Xenia is like that as well.

I doubt the fish in the tank caused any issues. It could have been the way you acclimated but the temp IMO is probably biggest issue...

What a nice easy way to lower the temp without it having an affect on the fish?

Do it slowly over a couple of days...you don't want to drop the temp more than 2 degrees in a 24 hour period. I would try and keep the temp between 78-80

I honestly don't think a temp of 82 is the problem here as I'm sure in the wild in peak summer and the sun is beating down on the reef temperatures probably rise higher all that said 82 is on the high side of the acceptable scale

I looked into chillers before but they are just too expensive for me right now

I just read an article that Sao most of the corals that r brought r from indo pacific n red sea. They say that the temp in those water are between 85-89 degrees. So I that true corals can survive in higher temps. I guess it mostly depends on what the temps r at lfs. Idk

I disagree...one of the reason reefs around the world are suffering is due to water temps hitting 82 and above...bad things start to happen on the reef when you get to those temps.
