I have a 55 gal
tank with 4x48" 65 watt pc
lighting. My water perameters are very good and I have a very stable and mature tank.
However, I recently added a nice frogspawn piece. Unfortunately, It is slowly dying. It was very open and looked happy the first couple of days. After that it started to contract. I have tried moving it to different locations in the tank with less water flow. I thought that it seemed to be a little happier. It never opened up as much as it did the first two days though.
Then one branch started dying off. That branch completely died after about two weeks. Now it seems like the next closest branch is doing the same thing. Each day a little bit of the edge of the frogspawn recedes and has formed into a frothy, silk like mass that is dead. Also, It does not open as much anymore. Especially in the branch where the dying is taking place.
I feed my corals phytofeast once a week. I give them a capful.
What am I doing wrong? Is the lighting not good enough? Is my piece doomed? Please help!
