    Hey I am new here :) I have a question though, I moved my torch coral higher up in the rockwork the other day and the next morning he looked all white. I lowered him down and he still looks bad? What can I do to help? Will he recover okay?

    should recover OK Meshell

    but I would offer it additional feedings in the mean time, to compensate for the food it would have recieved , when it had a larger population of Zooxanthellia (symobitioc algae, which have now exited the coral )

    the Zoos will repopulate and thus eventually it will resume its original color IME
