I'd do some water changes, assuming it's a water quality issue from the move.
I did not remove the substrate during the move and my ammonia is 0... I will do some water changes over the next few days to see if that helps. Before the move I was having some red algae film on the glass which prompted me to add a phosphate reactor and that seemed to help. But as I recall after adding the phospahate reactor the glass would develope a green film rather than the usual red after a few days...
I am not sure if the 2 corals are completely dead and if I should remove them or leave them be. The scoly is soft to the touch and slightly transparent and my bubble is no coming out at all and lost some bubbles... when I used a small powerhead to attempt to blow off the rocks..
sigh I bought some more snails today, I think SCUBA would be a cheaper hobby, haha just kidding ... but not about the cost part those 4 doz snails were 75 bucks...
