Cupped means to much light and flat to the rock means too little. It should be in the middle.

I think I know what's wrong. You had a condy die in your tank. I've heard that's really bad. I think they release toxins when they die that can nuke your tank. As far as a video, I can't find a link, is it in your build thread?

That was a long time ago and there have been many water changes since. It was like 2 months ago. I highly doubt it was the condy, especially since I took him out of the tank to die to avoid that issue.

The link to the vid is in my build thread, yes. I just looked at it on my phone and you can see what is going on with my corals very well.

I've done more research. I believe that my mushroom leathers are fine. With that being said, the reasoning that my zoas aren't opening might be from the fact I have a good number of softies in my tank, 2 mushroom leathers, 2 kenya tree, ric, and a colt along with my lps moon brain, duncan, and zoas. It is highly possible that all of the softies have made the water too toxic for the zoas.

I had zoas that did not open for months. I did a fresh ro di dip two days in a row. The first day I didn't notice anything. The second day I noticed what looked to be like three small worms. A week passed from the dip and they are now all open.
