Dying/shrinking/shedding

My torch and trumpet coral both seem to be closing up for business, anything I can do to revive/help them?

Considering you have 3 of the last 4 threads in this forum I'd say you have some serious water quality issues going on. Params and kit used to obtain the results?

I want to agree with Bigred here, you've been having some struggles recently. This is usually all from a related issue.
When was your last water change?

I had just done a water change earlier today. After I stupidly didn't read the label on the medicine for my clown with brooklynella and added it to the whole tank. My corals were having a bad reaction to this and the only one that seems to be gone is my trumpet coral but I'm not sure. It's not all white but it doesn't have that natural green/yellow to it so maybe it's not enteirely gone. Aside from that my levels and other fish are appearing to be normal.

Well that is good...I'll have to read up on the stuff when I get a minute. How large of a water change did you do? You'll need to do a large one to get as much of that stuff out as possible.
