New to SW

Have 12g Marineland Eclipse system that has been up for about 2 months. 12 lbs of LR with a small clown and small Royal Gama. Also have 2 snails and a cleaner shrimp. All seem to be doing well at this point.

Water has always tested good. We added some daisy polyps to top of rocks. They opened and closed every day (looking good) for about a week. Then I added a small power head (many references to water movement on this site). But the polyps and the Royal Gama don't seem to like all the movement. Polyps seem to not open all the way and Gama is less active.

I shut the PH off today and the polyps seemed to open more. Any thoughts on why I am seeing this?

Warm welcome to AA.

Fish die belly upward and rise to the surface. It's their way of falling.
