Tested 1 Acro for a month and it colored up and looked great. Tank is 10 months old. Shipment of 6 SPS came in yesterday and overnight my red dragon bleached or died? My 5 other SPS I ordered looking great. I’m about to sleep for work (graveyard) so I don’t have time to test my water parameters. Is it just bleached or dead? It was light pinkish when it arrived.

Hard to say for sure in that light, but i am guessing it has RTNed and dead. No harm to leave it in there just to make sure though.
Bummer. The one coral I wanted was the red dragon… I’m sure my parameters are on par… I do weekly water changes. I should’ve tested it first before it arrived.

You can leave it in there, miracles do happen. I have found red dragon does not ship well.
Only if I knew this! The store was only an hour away but I have WIFE and a newborn son at home so it’s hard to get out the house for long lol

Sorry your coral didn't make it, I have quite a few acros in my tank doing well and when I place an order it's not uncommon that one doesn't make it. It's always easier on corals to not have them shipped whenever possible.

It was when my kids were newborns that I used any excuse I could to get out of the house.

I found out the hard way too. Bought a nice small colony of dragon directly at a fish store, looked amazing at the shop, drove the 1 1/2 hours home and it had started to rtn from the base…quickly fragged the heck out of it. Saved probably 80% and now I have about 15 pieces of red dragon all over the tank lol

edit: they are also so delicate that they’ll self-frag if you look at them a little sideways ha!
