    My yellow fox coral is not thriving. Was advised by my LPS to place it at the bottom of the tank, moderate current and light. Does it have any specific requirements? I feed phytoplankton and cyclop-eeze twice a week. Supplement with Red Sea Reef Foundation ABC once a week.
    ph8.3, SG1.25, Temp 25C.
    Advice appreciated.

    From my experience fox corals are not yellow, yours could be bleached if it is a fox. Can you post a pic of it?

    I bought a yellow one as well last year, I think these are dyed.

    I never got mine to grow and it eventually died (thread is somewhere on MASA) in a tank that supported goniopora and chilli corals.

    Really hope you can nurse this one back to health.

    it might need a coral dip as when damaged they can get infected, then again as carlosdeandrade mentioned, what is the alk? and other params
