    I got this as a 3/4 sized frag grew for one year to 2 1/2 inches. All of a sudden it started bleaching all other corals are doing great. And I never moved it since day one in the tank until it started to bleach so I moved it to my 72 gal. Some eyes are still green but 85% bleached. Levels of ammonia nitrite and nitrate are zero and calc at 400, phosphates are good as well IMG_0180.JPG[​IMG]

    Nitrates at zero can be an issue. That should really be an issue for most corals though.

    My Hollywood stunner started out around half inch and it’s been almost a year and its about 5” around now and growing up like a cup. I do feed it coral frenzy ever now and then.

    It’s actually a pretty picky coral from what I have seen. I’ve tried 3 good chunks I broke off mine in a friends tank and every time it dies. First it bleaches a little and then looses all tissue. Only issue in that tank is high nitrates.

    I agree with @John3 chalices like dirty water.

    It’s just really weird how it’s the only one bleaching I feed it chunks of mysis and reef chilly/reef roids. It always extended its tentacles and was great. I think it started once I added aqua forest coral v and af build. That’s when I noticed it bleaching.
