After installing the new light, all of my corals started looking sickly but they've since all spawned new growth and the sucks ones started bouncing back. Except my elegance coral. It just looks dead. If I leave it in my tank, is there a chance it will spawn new life? Water parameters are awesome.
Depends how dead you are talking about. A pic would help.
If there is no tissue or significant tissue necrosis then i would classify it as completely lost. Its not recommended to let it get to this point however before removing it. Dying corals will pollute the water.
