Does my coral look like it’s dying?? 😧😰

One of my LPS corals is turning red around the edges. Does it look like it’s dying? It still extends its sweepers at night, not sure how to help it.2B4A9DF4-BA88-47DA-9502-CFFA4DFF5BBC.thumb.jpeg.287870edc97f574a5051318f55f0492a.jpeg

What lighting is it under and is it directly under light?

 

How much flow is it in?

That looks like the coral skeleton, so yeah the flesh is definitely receding. Doesn't mean its dying, but you can still save it. Or is something eating it? You got peppermint shrimps?

It’s under the stock evo light and I have plenty of flow in the tank I’m using the 6005 current eflux wave pump. It is directly under the light. Before this happened I had a diatom outbreak and some was developing on the spots that turned red.

I don’t have any shrimps right now and I have never seen anything eating it. Hopefully I can still save it.

That particular coral is not a high flow, high light coral.

Try putting it in a lower light, moderate flow area.

Thank you for your feed back @Clown79. I will move it to a better position latter today.

Yw. Just keep an eye on it. But try not to move it too much, let it acclimate to an area.
