    So moved everything from my 75 to a 125.
    Nitrates 0
    Amonia 0
    Ph 8.2
    Sali 1.025
    Nitrite 0
    Temp 77deg

    All fish doing fine. Shrimp ceabs smails good.

    All corals closed up. Anemones closed up.
    Put in fresh carbon.

    What could cause this?

    Catch me up here

    How did you or did you cycle this new tank?
    When did you move the stuff over?
    Did you move the sand bed?

    BTW Copper previously used in a tank does not leech out that is an old wives tale.

    Closed up does not really equal dying, so they might just be acclimating. Did you use the same container of salt mix that you had been using? Did you use RO water?

    Did you dechlorinate the water?

    could they just be acclimating to the changes? adding the new rock with established may be contributing?

    I don't think your anemone looks bad at all. It appears to be healthy with good color.
