    i have a 2yr old reef tank in which the palys and zoas have started to curl out. i dont understand why. i had changed the lighting to led jus 2 weeks back. only the yellow zoa and green plays are curling rest of my zoas and mushrooms are going great. some told me its due to low plankton, some tell its due to low feeding and some say its due to light. im just confused. pics attached......

    I've heard they just do that sometimes, even with stable conditions and parameters they just melt away. One rock is fine, one next to it withers away.

    Lower the LED level of cut back the light period and acclimate the corals to the light.
