    I have had a kenyan tree coral for a few months now and he has been great, every morning when the lights turned on he would open up and stay that way until the lights turned off. But recently he has not opened up at all and spends the day flopped over on the tank floor. is he sick? is there any thing I can Do?

    Hi DolphinFriendly - what is your water parameters like? The kenya tree's look, is a result of something in the water that it is not agreeing with....
    Perhaps the salinity is too low, or perhaps too high?

    What do you do water changes with? NSW or synthetic salt.
    What do you use for fresh water topup? Tap water? Or RO water?
    Do you have your own RO machine? Or do you get your RO water from the LFS?

    Something was most likely added to the water, that could possibly be affecting your Kenya tree coral.....
