Second post here, loving all the information!
I am new to the sw
thing and I have been trying to read up in the past few days.
Switched 50 Gallon tank to sw
, added live substrate and live rock and let the tank cycle for 4 days.
Yesterday I got a couple of starter corals from the lfs
. Again, I don't know too much yet, but I think they are button polyps, bubble coral, and I cant remember the name of the other.
The buttons and bubble looked great yesterday after they were added to the tank and opened up. Today the buttons look partially closed and have a white growth on them.

The other soft coral, that I forget the name of seems like some of it died on the short trip home. It still has yet to open as fully as I saw it in the store and some of the nodes look discolored.

Thinking about doing a pwc
, but I am interested to know, is there a common coral disease that I can treat for/ prevent next time?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
