15. Explanation of problem: almost 2 weeks ago he went really limp, and retracted, a few days later he started loosing color. He never came back, i did a PWC
and bought the phyto as i thought mabe there wasnt enough to feed it so i have been dosing the tank and spot feding it small amounts every other day along with some drops of iodine. Now it looks like its flesh is deteriorating and i found a small piece of him on the tank bottom
. I really don't want him to die. The guys from the LFS
are great and said it was a great hardy coral. I have an bulb tipped anemone that has been doing great it even split in two and im sure neither of them touched it. I just don't know what to do. all water parameters are stable, the only thing that fluctuates is the temp by 2 or 3 degrees.
