I have had this lobo for about a year and a half. It has done well and grown larger. Color has always been awesome. over the last couple of weeks 2 of the heads have started losing color and this morning I noticed tentacles out but not on the part of the head that has faded. I really would hate to loose this one because then I would have to listen to my son n law because he has been trying to talk me out of it for months. Water parameters have been stable PH 8.0 alk 8.3 cal 410 salinity 1.025 temp 78 nitrates alway just a trace. I don't think the duncan or fox coral would bother it. The prectinia has some nasty sweepers but the head nearest it is not showing the fading so I doubt it would reach over that head and sting the other 2 but maybe thats possible? Any ideas?

Any new fish added recently or observed anything picking at it. Any lighting changes or anything else changes inside the tank recently?

Hmm I did add a small ruby red blenny but I have not seen it near any coral. Other fish have been in the tank for months a pair of clowns that stay in their nems I yellow tail damsel a bicolor blenny and a red cardinal. Lighting is a hydra 26 and the only changes made to it was to reduce the intensity a bit but that was after I noticed the discoloration on the lobo

What percentage of blue versus white lighting do you think makes the best coral growth combo?
