Hey guys.
I noticed that some of my corals over the last 3 days, on the right hand side of my tank experiencing Tissue necrosis.Tested all of my water parameters and was rather shocked, they were better than ever!
Did altogether about 300l water change on the tank and the problem still continued.

A while ago,i thought to myself, NO WAY, there is something wrong as the problem only lies on one side of the tank, so i looked up at the MH bulb and found it cracked in half and just hanging.
Wala,there's the fault!!
Well sadly i've lost alot of my prize pieces :(
So it all boils down to coral burn, rather than TN.
I thought i will post this for all of our members to please check out your bulbs!
Pics to follow shortly.
