Hi folks! Noob coral concern over here: I'm sure I'm doing something wrong... I bought this kenya tree over a month ago. I think it might be sick::sniffles: It was doing great up until last week. I went to Florida for 3 days, and came back to a small green hair algae bloom in my tank. Promptly did a water change, and everything seems to be back on track... Except my Kenya tree doesn't seem to 'bloom' anymore. Also it looks to be a bit more purple than it used to. Before it was pretty much a fleshy pink color, and would 'bloom' (not sure of the correct term) within 1/2 hour of the lights coming on. Now it's more purple, and not, well, blooming in the morning. I had it on a rock that was pretty much half way deep in my tank with the intention of moving the entire rock to the bottom of the tank when I finally got a better looking rock for that spot. But I figured that whatever else was on there could reap the benefits in the meantime. All went well the first month and the tree pretty much doubled in size. (Not sure if that's normal or not, either) Nothing has been added to the tank in the last few weeks. I did start feeding with very small doses of phytoplankton this week thinking that was the problem. And, all other corals seem in good shape, although they're all zooas and mushrooms... Water levels seem good: ph 8.2, salinity 31, nitrates 15 (it's been better) , calcium 375, and everything else 0. I'm not sure of my alk. (I've ordered a KH/Alk test 3 different times from 3 different companies, and all 3 have cancelled my order because the item was backordered. I placed yet another order today with a 4th company, we'll see what happens.) Am I doing something wrong? Or is there something that I think is OK, that really isn't? Or does this coral just hate me? :twisted: (Remember, I'm the one that got squirted in the eye by the purple killer mushroom.) I'm a little paranoid, now. I don't know what to do... Thanks! :HELP!::HELP!::HELP!: Here's some pictures, if you think that will help: (sorry, they're not so good) The first is from 2 weeks ago, tree blooming, pink, looking good... The 2nd is from yesterday, kind of purple, not so good... granted, the first was taken from a higher angle, and you can't see the difference in hight, but you can see the difference in appearance and color, right?
