    New torch coral brought home Sunday afternoon
    Was fine until yesterday lunchtime ( Monday )
    I noticed what I first thought was some one had take off half a head but soon realised it was actually coming away by itself
    It was mid way in my tank med flow
    So on advice I moved it down to the sand less flow
    By last night I'd lost one whole head and another
    All looking very sorry for itself
    I re checked all Params and all are fine
    I am new to this so be gentle
    This am (tues) I've moved it up closer to the light
    Figured that it was pretty close to the lights at the Lfs and I think it's perked up slightly
    Any advice welcome please
    I don't want to loose it :(

    Please list parameters,Light fixture/schedule,Stocking list,Tank size,and flow rating.I would stop moving it around this will only add stress.Light acclimation is important for euphyllia.

    Welcome!!:)

    Typical polyp bail out, the coral is stress for some reason, just need to find out what is stressing the coral.
