Okay, they sound good. How much water to you change? do you bring it up to temp. 80 degrees is a good temp. Wait a few days and see if it improves. I believe it has something to do with the amount of water you changed.

i will by the looks of it the frogspawn died idk though its just the white skiliton with the stuff deep inside of it

i was told to leave it in the tank because if there is any tissue left in it it can come back to life so i hope at least one of the three branches does

Frogspawn Coral is a large polyp stony coral (LPS) and although one of the easier corals to have are still a lot more sensitive then star polyps and Zoas and or Palytoas. As such I am not to surprised that it was the one that did not make it. Be careful that the temp. of your PWC is close to that of your DI and be sure to do your Makeup water at least a day in advance.
