I have a 30gal long reef tank with 35lbs of live rock and 30lbs of live sand. Two Clowns, Royal Gramma and Six line Wrasse. Two Polyp colonies, Mushroom coral, Toadstool, Cloves and Trumpet Coral. Using Fluval C3 hob filter, Coralife HO T-5 Dual Lamp Light Fixture and Tiger shark Powerhead for circulation.




Talk to you all soon and more pics soon!!

Hello,
It's doesn't look like its coming off the rock, it's just wilting. They do this from time to time, especially on acclimation. As long as your water params ate in order, it should come back. Leathers like quite a bit of flow, and med-high light. Make sure it's getting enough of both.
Best of luck with it!

Agreed, it also looks like its fallen over, find a way to secure the rock so it's right side up.
