HELP--what's wrong with my coral?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


My tank is approximately 6 months old and doing well. 24g AIO. I do weekly 20% water changes. I have lps, sps, softies, etc and all are thriving. I dose 2 part daily. I did a water change on Saturday. This particular coral closed up and has not reopened. This has never happened. He normally opens fully daily and closes with lights out.


Params: ph 8.0, temp 80, alk 8.3, calc 460, nitrate 0. SG 1.024.


All the other corals are still open and doing great.


Any thoughts are appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Hollaaa. Leathers are known for closing up for a few days and getting rid of a layer of "skin". Should be all good bro.

Yes leathers "shed." It's a normal process and has been documented.

Nice green sinularia. Should look nicer than ever when it opens back up. Sometimes it takes a week, other times it's a matter of a few days.
