    You seem to be having some issues with your tank. Why don't you fill in a detailed help request with all the info. Exact tank setup, how old, all peripheral equipment, any changes lately, latest test parameters. How old is your DSB? Etc. it will make it much easier to understand what is going on and to help you.

    What are you doing that is new to your routine?
    Has everything been stable and fine and suddenly it's come a problem or have you added new corals, new food, carbon dosing etc.
    What about the NP pellets you mentioned in your other post?
    Are the LEDs new, have you increased their output recently?
    What is the DSB looking like?
    Have you tested your parameters recently?
    Have you had a power outage?

    Maybe post some pictures of the tank, close ups of the problem corals and a picture of the sump/DSB.

    It's a lot of effort but without all the detail and pics it will be very difficult to help you. Everyone is going to ask the same questions and someone will be able to help.
