Coral question

I'm just wondering. Right now I don't have any corals. Just bought a Kenya tree n it died in two days. Parameters were all good. Only thing maybe is my ph is 7.9-8.0. What I was wondering is should I be adding any kind of supplements for corals? I use reef crystals salt mix. That's the only thing that goes into my tank.

Ph being that low is not gonna cause a coral to die in 2 days. What else is in the tank as far as fish and other critters?

need your parameters, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, temp and salinity.....

Angels can eat corals. Did you see the beauty near the coral? that may be the problem right there...

I believe a kenya tree relies more on micro plankton rather than just light, also what other corals do you have? possible chemical warfare? Acclimating problems? Seems very strange to die in just two days.
