Need help with Frogspawn possibly dying

Type & how long you have had it: 1 month
Current lighting & Bulb Age: T5
Nitrate: 0
Calcium: 420
Phosphate: ?
Alkalinity: ?
pH: 8.0
Salinity: 1.023
Temperature: 77
Location in tank: low
Current amount of flow: low
Current tank dosing regimen: calcium to maintain 400 - 450
Nearby coral: candy cane a foot away
Explanation of problem: dying
Water changes: weekly
Light timing: 8hours of day, 1hr 1/2 before and after day time

I took a picture of the candy cane as well sense it's been acting weird
First time posting as you could tell , am I missing anything ? I still haven't done a revive dip (would need some instructions on that). Seems like the "brown jelly" symptom on the frogspawn, would a dip save it or is it a 50/50 ?

Have you had any salinity or temperature fluxuations lately? How long has it been inverted? When was it purchased?

I would go to the lfs and ask them to test your alkalinity and phosphates if you can

Sometimes it takes a little more than 40 minutes to get a response, it isnt because we dont care.

Mentioning temperature, this weekend being the hottest it's ever been in the New England area (94 F) and my heater being at 77 F could it be that my water temperature was higher than average ? I thought of this because of the location of the tank.

No problems. We are here to help. Is the tank by a window or something? Do you have a thermometer in the tank. If not, you should get one.

There really is no need for this type of comment. If we don't respond, it's because maybe we missed your thread, or we're thinking how best to help. Just be a bit patient

As for your situation, how many bulbs do you have in your T5 fixture? When was the tank set up? Did you cycle it?

Looking back at the blown up picture of the frogspawn, it lookd pretty bad. I would be surprised if it came back. It looks like you can see skeleton. We will try to find the problem and stop it from happening to others.
