    Hi, can someone please shed some light on this coral for me please. As far as I know it is some kind of mushroom, but I can really find any similar looking ones on the internet. When I bought it there was just two on the rock but after about 2 week the one split so now there are three.

    When the one started to split I was worried that it was dying as I have never seen this happen so was quite relieved when it split completely!

    The pink ones split like the plague. I often cut/ pull them off only to have another 2 or 3 come back from what is left on tge rock

    The larger on the left recently started to get a few white tips right on the edge of it, it is not viable in the pics, any idea what it can be? Bleaching, or I read somewhere stray voltage could also do it?

    Stick your hand into the tank whilst barefoot and you'll learn very quickly if it's an issue.

    But first, splatter a few droplets on the floor. Stand in one. Better if you got a paper cut somewhere on your hands.

    Checked now, even a few drops of water on the floor but nothing. Also checked with the multi meter, only got a reading of 0.02v, suppose that wont do anything right?

    Depends if you were barefoot or had your shoes on....

    Anyway, .02v is nothing to worry about.

    But did you earthed your tank?
