    Hi all, my red plating montipora isn't looking too good.

    I found some of the substrate that was kicked up lying on it (not a lot though), and when I blew it off with a power head, saw some die off... well I think it's die off.

    My question, would it recover again by itself? It was growing nicely before, and I don't want to loose the fellow. What can I do to boost it some? I am dosing calcium, magnesium and strontium.

    Shoe, relieved... I thought so also - don't have too much experience with sps, having mostly done softies and lps previously.

    Want to do more sps this time round :thumbup:
