    MyFinger coral has shrunk to a 1/4 of the size and is turning brown. I just added a sump and had a minor out break of red slime aglae. I treated it yesterday with red slime remover that is safe to all fish and corals so it says. But it has not looked right in 3 days, but today it looks horrible.

    I would try running some Carbon and do a significant water change maybe 15G. I would think it was the Red Slime remover. I'm sure the leather will recover but the carbon and water change would sure help.
