If all your water parameters are in line, what kind of lighting are you using??

Is it getting to much flow??

Also, it could be splitting.

Have you witnessed it expelling something that looks brownish? if so, that would probably be the zooxanthellae which isn't a good sign. You'd probably be better off fragging the head.

I saw it expelling some stuff this morning but it was clear....and I don't think it's getting too much flow the other head seems to be softly swaying back and forth and completely happy. All parameters are good well as of yesterday evening they were...Im using T5 lighting. How long should I give it before fragging. I just added it Tuesday.

My pink tip did that when I first added it give it a few weeks and you might have it in a low lit area from my experience they like light and moderate flow and u can try feeding it some brine and mysis. This is what mine looks like after a few weeks after it acclimated to my tank

Thanks! I fed them last night for the first time...I'll keep my eye on it. What concerns me is that the other head seems to be perfectly happy...along with all my other corals

I'm still a bit worried...probably more so now because I did a coral rx dip and saw a worm come out of it...I then placed it at the bottom of the tank...the one head still isn't coming up but i suppose I'll wait it out
