    Even though the last picture is probably the worst, you can still tell the coral doesn't look too healthy.

    Thanks Chuckdee. I can definitely see the bleaching that you were talking about. My own does not look that bad as yet but one side is definitely getting there. I will post a picture as soon as i can, but that probably will not be until tomorrow. Long workday today:angry:

    I won't lie to you, the right side looks just like my brain did. Maybe someone else can chime in with a suggestion on how to save it. Even after my parameters were good, I still lost my coral after several months of it bleached out..

    Just keep the water clean and the params correct and keep it out of high light areas, that's about all you can do I think, and feed it. Hope it pulls through for ya.
