    Well when you say ok ? What was nh4, ca, Mg, Alk, no3 , po4 and salinity? And it could be starvation , two little fishes goniopower helps. How long have you had the coral? What has changed or been added?

    no3=5ppm
    po4=0
    ca=430ppm
    alk= 2,16 meg/l
    salinity is 1,026
    I got the coral in early in December,the lfs did not have goniopower at the time so he said I can use zoplan which I fed 2 times a week. I have started feeding gonipower the last 2 weeks. the only changes I made is using special blend after water changes.

    Besides it seeming bleachd and starved, why would you start using special blend after water changes?

    My no3 was high last year so the lfs said I must use red sea no3;po4 x and special bled to get the no3 levels lower.
