O.K. -Thanks for the info
What lighting have you got
and are you placing these new corals low down and then once they are used to the lighting raising them
I have had very positive experiences doing it the above way, increasing the height of the coral over time in relation to the lights
I do sand bed for a couple of days , then move up to middle and by the end of the 1st week, have them where I want them
I lost my very 1st SPS x 2 simply because not knowing I placed them high on my reef and they bleached within a few weeks
might not be light related , but if the chemisty checks out , then it could be ?
Steve-I have a 250 w 72 inch aQualight with cf in it. I do the same as you starting the frags at the bottom.
The top one had full color when I took it out of the bag.The bottom one was pretty white when I took it out.
Your top coral looks better than mine, I have about 10% of the flesh left on it.
Hopefully both of ours make it. Best of luck
It probably would have more if my coral bueaty would leave it alone
Yeah I know what you mean I have a chromis that was going after mine.
