    Not that I'm aware of. Fading may be due to a lack of light intensity.

    Try blowing it off with a turkey baster. If it is Algea it will smother the coral and kill it. If it wont blow off it maybe the corals poyps. Can you get a pic

    Sorry, my last post may have sounded rude! Just felt as if I was missing the boat?

    Welcome Kathleen! Of Course!!! Everyone here is great!! I am still somewhat of a newbie....I love those two tanks! They are so colorful!
