I think something else is happening here. What are your current parameters? What lighting? How long have you had these corals?
What size tank and what are you using for flow?
live zooplankton..my parameters are all good ammonia 0, nitrate 0, nitrite 0, phos. 0, calcium 440,ph 8.2, alk
. 200ppm..salanity 1.025. led
lighting set on low...all of these done with my api test kits and strip test at lfs
. I have 4 powerheads at each corner of the tank each 700 gal
per hr . set on timers, reef octopus hob
skimmer, magnum 350, hob
filter. I had first coral for about 6 weeks and it was looking good but was sick when I got it it was recovering and the latest one was 2 weeks old and it looked great see pic below...after spot feeding with live zooplankton I could see the orange color zooplankton laying on the coral around its mouth the coral swelled up with feeding tentacles out then it released a stringy slime then I used a turkey baster to try to remove the zooplankton but it seemed as if it was stuck to and eating the coral....
