1 head of my purple torch died (the other head looks fine) and now my hammer isn't opening up. They have been in the tank for over 4 years. The lighting hasn't changed and the wave makers haven't moved. The frogspawn right above the hammers are fine.

Everything else seems fine! Sps js growing and extended. Acans and Zoas are fine

Alk is 8.5
Calcium is 490 (I know, I dialed back the dose)
P04 is 0.2
N03 is 5

How are the corals now? Did you looked carefully in case of any flatworms could be the cause?

Flow....
I had a Duncan colony the size of a tennis ball .... readjusted my locline and didn't realize the flow was Jetstreamed hitting the backside of the colony from 18ins away. Melted away all but the front 1/4th in under 3 days.

Flow Jetstreamed in the wrong spot can take out soft tissue LPS fairly quickly

Hammer died. I cut off the dead head off my torch and the other one is doing fine.
what salt do you use?
Tropic Marin (it is junk), but going back to Fritz when the bucket is gone.
