Keep losing my corals

Hey guys,

I have a 54gal sw tank for several years now and ever since I started it i have had no luck with keeping my corals alive.

I am using an eheim 2215 canister pump and four ph. I use Ro water and add aragamite with every water change. My fish are doing great. They never got sick but my corals just keep dying. Any tips as to why would be great.

First off, starting a new thread would probably get you more attention. I imagine a moderator will move this soon.

To help any, we're going to need some water parameters like salinity, temperature, pH, nitrates, calcium, alkalinity, phosphates... you get the drift. Also would be good to know how you acclimate the corals, what type of lighting you have (# of watts and type), and what type of corals you're trying to keep.

After you give us that info, I'm sure many folks will chime in.

The information that Kurt asked about will help. Also, was this tank brand new when you set it up as SW or was it used for something else?

Are you able to keep shrimp and crabs alive?
