I bought a polyp variety pack and a kenyan tree at blue zoo aquatics. These are my first corals. My kenyan tree looks like it's dying. My zoas have not opened. They arrived on Wednesday and I used CoralRx then acclimated them over 45 minutes. I gave them coral food AB+ for the past two days.

Salinity: 1.026, Ammonia: 0, Nitrite: 0, Nitrates between 0-5, phosphate between 0-0.25, dKH 8, 78 degrees

I am also not sure what type of coral the other two are.

Is there something I should be doing differently?

What test kit do you have? Dose the reef energy daily while you have 0 nitrate.

What light is that? A weak light with a glass lid may also be an issue.

Kenyii tree is very tough coral. Assure phos is not elevated and place coral in path of moderate flow and moderate to medium light. While theyre not picky with lighting, this light you have may be bare minimum

I tested the phos today and it's not elevated. How do I know if it has moderate flow? Does it need direct flow/ need to be moving?

Moderate will be subtle. . . like leaves waving in the wind
