Sick corals

I did a PWC three weeks ago and checked my salt levels with my refractometer, however I was unaware it was calibrated wrong and read 1.025 when the true reading was 1.017. This was the same for about two weeks until I realised I have now got it back up to 1.025 and has been for a couple of days but they still have not come back out. Is there any thing else I can do? They are GSP and others?

Bad break. Sorry. Are all other parameters ok?

Iodine?
Trates?
Trites?

Do you feed phyto?
Aminos?

Maybe try dosing brightwells restore for them?

Of course- it may just take time.

The company Brightwell makes a product called RESTOR. I have used it in the past to bring back a bleached and unhealthy coral that I received from another tank. It works really well. Here is a link to the product...

My corals are still all closed up, they some times show a very slight chance of opening up then nothing. Fish all all good, levels all good, anemone very healthy and happy, not sure what to do?

Ok. What are these levels in your tank?

Calcium
Phosphates
Iodine
Magnesium
Strontium

And- what do you dose in your tank? What chemicals?

What's your salinity level?
What's your temperature?

How close are your corals to each other?
Placement?
How long have you had them?
