Mushrooms not doing good

I don't seem to have good luck with mushrooms. My leather coral is doing wonderfully, but my hairy mushrooms are just sad looking. Recently my sun coral started dying off too. I have a haitian anenome that keeps attaching near the coral and then it started losing color.

I had the red algae, added Red Slime remover (Chemiclean) and that got rid of it. So far it hasn't returned.

I think I overfeed.

I moved this to it`s own thread. As far as your question. It could be two things. 1) Water parameters could be off. Please post your water test results. 2) Leather corals do something called chemical warfare when they think other corals are encroahing upon their space. There`s no way to test for this but you might want start using some GAC to clean up the water if this warfare is going on.
