Do a water change to make the water less toxic. Stop trying to feed it.

Well since my open brain coral bit the dust ive been having trouble with all my corals.

A few days after the open brain coral died i started noticing zoa polyps closed, then other things.
I moved a few corals to my 7 gallon nano.
But what is left was doing fine.

Until the last couple of days, yesterday i found my torch like this.
Whats going on?

Have you checked all your perameter?

Like calcium and phosphates ?

It sounds like your water parameters are off. The fat that you had ammonia is also a sign of that. Check your parameters daily, you want ammonia at 0, nitrites at 0. Nitrates and phosphates also want to keep at 0 but a small amount of nitrate isn't so bad, a large amount is bad. If you see any of these things above zero do a water change. Has the tank been cycled? What else is in the tank? Don't be offended by me asking this I'm only trying verify.

+1 feeding isn't your problem. Nor is it probably lighting. On one post you said phosphate was .25, next post it was zero. Which is it? A .25ppm phosphate reading is a bit high, hard corals like less than .05ppm. Water changes.

It was his ammonia at .25 then the next post it was 0 with no trites or trates

Some tests don't read accurately at the lower levels. Might ask the LFS to second check it. Do we know his phosphate level?

Don't believe phosphate level has been posted yet.
