hello all, I'm new to this site so please be easy on me lol. I've been in the hobby for about 8 years now. I recently started my 10gallon Nano tank (3 months ago) its doing average I would say. the corals are growing, not fast but pretty well. I don't have much coralline algae growing so I wanted to try purple up. well I did that last night with a ph of about 8.14 and I woke up to a ton of notifications from my APEX saying it was 6.0!! I'm planning on doing a water change immediately but curious to why it dropped so much. I have a 10 gallon sump/refugium too so my water volume is around 18 gallons with all my live rock and sand.
Ive had this trumpet coral for about 3 weeks and one head has been opening fine but the smaller head (which looked like it was splitting when I purchased it) has rarely opened fully. The last few days it was been even more shriveled than before. It appears that one side of the split might have no mouth and I think you can see the skeleton in the middle - hard to tell in these photos? I also noticed the little branching clear thing on the base of the skeleton this week. Any ideas on what could be going on with this guy? Water parameters appear to be good other than nitrate, which is between 15-25 depending on how recent after a water change. Other corals are seemingly doing ok as well. Thanks! Edit - Could the white growth be some form of Aiptasia?
