    Hi

    Can anyone help me?

    My daisy coral has swollen up at the base! Looks like its retaining water?

    One of the trees has also retracted for no reason.

    I am attaching a pic.

    Does anybody know whats going on?

    My Goniopora do this all the time and my tank has great water parameters. They sometimes inflate more water than what is needed. I wouldn't worry about. But like Fraser suggests tells us about your tank.

    Ca is a bit low. Try get up to 430 to 450. You could raise your salinty to 1.025 to 1.026 which will increase your Ca too.
