Anytime I new coral frag it doesn't look anything like it did when I purchased it. I understand Zoanthids take time to come out and such but i'm talking like 3 weeks. The only thing I have wrong in my system is Phosphates. I tested it and still getting .25 ml. I switched from tap water to RO DI
water around 3 weeks ago and have done numerous(7 PWC
ranging from 5G to 20G in a 60g system) PWC
to get out the tap water.

My tank has been up in running around 3 months still getting cyano
outbreaks and red slime algae.
