I've placed it down onto the sand so that it's not exposed to the brightest of light, but it just looks worse now and the pipes are looking a bit brown now. Not sure if that's algae build up or discolouring from dieing. I don't even know if its dead or what. How can I tell?? Unfortunately I don't have a chiller and the T5 lights I have generate a fair amount of heat, but this aquarium I have is meant for a sps
reef setup and expected to do well with its standard equipment. My fish seem to do well, even with the higher temps. Should I ditch it if there's no hope with it rejuvenating, or should I leave it there, persist with it and wait and see if it opens up as we approach the cooler months and see the summer off?
