    You have reached your stocking limit for fish in your tank. The recommendation is 1 fish for each 10 gallons of tank size. Also, what color is your flower pot, it looks white in the picture? Flower Pot corals can be very difficult to keep in our tanks....good luck with it. BTW, your tank looks really nice.

    Be sure you are feeding the flowerpot every other day or so. Since it is white, that indicates that it has lost its photosynthetic algae (zooxanthellae) and it cannot feed itself from the light -- the coral is bleached. White is not a normal healthy color for it.

    You will need to hand feed it. The best type of food for it is Cyclopeeze (which you can buy in a frozen bar). Flowerpots need to be protected while they are being fed, since they are such slow eaters. Probably the best way to do this is to cut the bottom off of a 2-liter soda bottle, place the bottle over the coral, then squirt the cyclopeeze on the coral. The bottle will protect the food from other tank inhabitants and give the coral time to eat it.

    If the coral is going to survive, it will regain its color over time. You will have to continue feeding it by hand, though.

    Well there's a pretty good success rate bringing them back to a normal color if you give them the attention they need.

    How do you like this tank? I'm trying to get my grandfather to get one and was wondering how the stock lighting and flow is.

    Its good system only problems i've had with it was my own doing this being my 1st saltwater tank rookie mistakes but I've found that you need to add a extra power head for good flow and use chemipure elite instead of carbon for the filtering the lighting i havent had a problem with but i would put sps or any hard corals in my tank. but if you wanna do hard corals then get the hqi or led nano cube
