When the coral turned dark my initial impression was the light issue but I have 8 T5 bulbs (39-54W) so that can't be it. I knew something was serious when it started to flop over and within hours, a brownish matter started to decompose from the body. My LFS
asked me if I add calcium or iodine daily. I said no because I do PWC
of 20 gallons every two weeks. He advised me to do Ca
and Iodine supplement daily regardless
and maybe that is why my coral died. I don't know if I agree on that one. Maybe you can shread some answers. DP
