I haven't bothered testing it TBH. With all the coral dying at once my water went to ****, my skimmer went nuts, and I had a cyano bloom. So I've been cleaning that up. And it wasn't just the LPS that died. I had 2 rics in there that I'm hoping pull through. They were orange, they are currently grey. I also had a pink birds nest in there that kicked the bucket. Just most of my tank was LPS.

Your original post stated "since switching over to my 55" so does that mean you also switched out your sandbed too? New tank cleaned with chemicals prior to?

If you're getting "shocked" when you put your hand in the tank, no wonder things are dying. I'd pin point that ASAP. And like previously stated, when you moved over your tank, how did ya do it? Its really weird for hardy corals like those to die that quick. I'd get a second opinion on your water param's! Something ain't right.

The sand was not switched, it is a brand new sand bed. Rock was the only biological filter that was switched over. The sump was also originally attached to the 36, but is now plumbed into the 55.

It was simple to pin point where the issue was, it was my heater. I have again tested my parameters and they are all at 0. Still concerned of course, but the inverts in the 55 continue to go about their day without an issue. Should I move the 3 remaining corals back to the 55? My current thought is to keep them in the 36 for a week so not to stress them out more than I have to. Still worried that they will not pull through, hard to tell at this point if they have stopped spitting their zoo/bleaching.

They are under 4 T5HO in the 36, chalice and acan are on sandbed and the wormbrain is about halfway up.

Update. Got up and did some more testing to my tank.
kH-8
Calcium- 400
Phosphate- 0
Nitrate- 0
pH- 7.8

All of those I wasn't surprised by except my pH, but I just realized it is 730 in the morning and that it will go up as the day goes on. My backup heater is turned all the way up and is unable to get my tank above 72 degrees. Will be getting a new one today when I go for groceries. We have any other ideas here?
