Brain not looking to hot.

Slowly but surly he seems to be recessing. Any input on what could be going on. All my parameters look good. Just very very little ammonia if any. I'm going to do ph test right now.

Very little ammonia? Ammonia is poison. If you have ANY ammonia present, you've answered your own question.

My test kit is a little misleading I think. I'm using api and when I finish my testing procedure the directions say to wait 5 minutes for the color to develop. After 5 min I'm showing the color to match at 0ppm but if I allow it to go any farther like 8 to ten it creeps up to .25. So I don't know what to conclude.

I wrote a message to api to get it squared away today but haven't got a response yet.

What was the coral dip? Corals can recede for many reasons- Ph swings, alkalinity swings, temp swings, high nutrient levels, flow issues...etc. Rule out these.
