Im new to hobby. I have a 65gal tank i had cp lights with one 50/50 and one 10k just upgraded my lights to a AI Hydra. I have bought some frags for tank and they don't seem to be doing well. My water is reading are

Salinity 1.023
PH. 8.0
Ammonia 0ppm
Nitrate 0ppm
Nitrite. Oppm
Temp. 78

I thought it would be fine to add corals but doesn't seem like it. What can I do to help them?

Welcome to the hobby! I would suggest you post this in the reef tank section of the Forums. You are in the FOWLR (Fish Only With Live Rock) Section. '

I would also try to add pic's of your current setup. Pictures go along way! I would also add what Salt mix you are using. I would use "Reef Crystals" if your not already.

Amazon.com: Instant Ocean Reef Crystal Sea Salt Marine Mix, 200-Gallon: Pet Supplies

Also how old is your tank? Why do you feel your corals are not doing well?

You went from power compact to leds... Thats your issue. Make sure you turn those leds down alot. Unless the frags you bought came out of a led grow tank, youll more than likely experience bleaching

Either turn down your leds a bit or move the coral down lower in the tank. Its bleaching because theres too much light there
