I've had this brain coral for 5 days now, and it's losing it's color, slowly. When I got it the lfs
said to place it in the substrate, so that's where I've got it. I was wondering if it's in trouble, if so, what is that trouble, and what can I do about it. Should it be placed so it's 'foot' is completely in the substrate? Because it's not now, as you can see by the pics:
These next two are a bit fuzzy, doh...
29 gallon tank
15 gallon sump/fuge (approximately 10 gallons of water in it)
Mag 5 return pump
1 maxijet 1200, high flow in the top of the tank
1 200 gph
powerhead aimed along the back of the tank at the bottom
130 watts PC
lighting, one 10000k, and one 420/460 actinec (sp?)
: 120 ppm
( I know this is low, I'm trying baking soda)
Calcium: 450 ppm
Any ideas, hints, or tips would be greatly appreciated.
