Hello
I'm the gold ring master. Do you think I can save scolymia?

Which one? Both look rough, but are definitely salvageable.
Low light around 75 par, moderate flow, feed 2-3x week with mysis and/or coral feast (or similar).
It should start to improve in a couple weeks.
Hope that helps!

That's impossible. The seller said he bought it for $1,200.
No way! I've never seen one for that much that isn't a master with 4-6 colors and measuring 3-4 in in diameter. I have the 2x of the exact same piece and paid $250 for each. (Now mind you, that in the US...)

As for location, I keep all my scolys in the bottom of the tank. Most are in the sand, and a couple are on the lower rocks. IME, they much prefer to be flat as opposed to "tilted"... I've lost a couple along the way due to mounting at an angle and have had them bleach and recede when placed in light above 100 par.
Hope that helps!

place them on the bottom of the tank, especially when they are shrinking up and looks no happy, lower flow and lighting with once a week feeding will most likely save it. good luck!
