Yes, sorry type error, but I can't figure out what the heck is going on everything else is doing great, leathers, mushrooms etc.

I moved it 2 or 3 times and it still is not doing so well, do you think I need to raise the salinity?

that might be the issue. I keep mine at 1.026, and my xenia is always pulsing and growing rapidly.

Ok I'm going to try that, any idea about the red slim algae I'm getting! And the picture I attached is from my 29 gallon here but as you can see the algae is crazy!

How long has this tank been running and are you using Ro/Di water or tap?

The red algea might be Cyanobacteria

Its cyano. Check your nitrates and phosphates.
