No brain corals, no matter the species need to be fed.

I'm afraid to buy a new one he turned completly white than started go get color back but now it looks burned so I believe it is the dead tissue. I tried everything even had him in dark shade for a day or two

If there is flesh on the skeleton, it's still alive.

Well, I did some rearranging once I found the minor leak in my tank. I now have my CC and my 2 SPS 8 inches below my lighting. As it stands, I don't want to go any higher as it would mess with flow and i'm affraid it would burn them.

Even so. I'm using 8x 54 watts per side over my tank and I have acropora about 10" from the surface right now and it's loving it.

So, if i redo the entire aquascape of my tank into a large mountain out of a corner I might be able to pull it off...but I'd be worried about all the crap I release into the system that has layered itself around them.

Just keep a water change ready for when you are done. Either that or add another piece of rock to the top.

Moved some rock around. It looks so awful, but I have my german blue polyp, orange capriconis, and candy can frag 5-6 inches from light. much higher and they'd be out of the water.
