Hi Guys,

I urgently need help. I'm a beginner to Reefing but learning as we going along. I've had my tank for the last 5 months. for some reason my polyps just fade away and die. The polyps were fine but in noticed them start to stay closed for long periods. I started target feeding twice a week but I'm having no luck. These are my water parameters. Everything else seems to be happy in the tank. Please see the pictures attached. Thanks for the help.

Temp. 24.6
Salinity. 1.025
pH. 8.2
Ammonia. 0
Nitrite. 0
Nitrate. 20
Magnesium. 300
Calcium. 0
Alkalinity. 1.2meg/l. 3.5dKH

All those numbers seem out of whack - I'd take a sample to your lfs to check that your kits are telling the truth - Alk should be at least double that/Mag 1300/Ca 400 for some ballpark figures
