    Hi all

    I have a kenya tree for quite some time but it seems to be turning a blackish/dark brownish colour at the base and going up the stem. Any reasons why? Also its opening fine and all parameters are fine. Other corals doing okay.

    Thanks

    Mine also turned a grey/brown towards the bottom of the stem, looks dirty, but it's been that way for months now - still opens every day and is growing. I'd also be keen to know if it's a problem or normal colouring.

    i would "dip" the coral in coralRX or iodine, or find a lfs what will do it for you just incase its bacterial or fungicidal

    Actually, I'd just leave it alone unless it starts spreading rapidly
