Help!
I have this pavona. And I had it about half way up. And it’s browning. It’s an SPS but I’ve read that it requires lower light. Any suggestions where I should put it and try and save it?

Attached are my parameters now

Can you lower the intensity of the lighting system?

I can. But everything else is thriving. I didn’t wanna crash anything else in my tank. Mostly LPS and softies.

Light isn’t your problem. It’s low nutrients. I also have mini potatochip pavona and they do horrible under 2ppm nitrates. This was my OG colony.

What do you think I am missing? I dose stontrium and Calcium.

I would raise your nitrate level first and foremost. Keep in mind, I keep mine at 5ppm nitrates and have kept them with no issues at 20ppm.

What controller/testing system are you using?

Just leave it alone and let it recover. It's a pretty hardy coral. I have a chunk that broke off from the main colony, fell onto the sand and I just left it there since 3 months ago and its still alive and green as grass.
 

When you feed your fish do you feel like your feeding the algae as well?
