Its not hard, but something is off...

Sadly, really no way to tell for sure based on description, so maybe few pics?

I doubt that this is strictly light related, probably combination of things.....
Thank you for replying. I am very sad and frustrated at the same time. No results after so much money. :( I have attached a few pics. The carpet looking thing was in the middle of the rock work not on the frag rack. The frag rack shrunk 10% after a week at the very bottom of the tank. The ricordias were about 3x the size as of now. I honestly really want to save the ones on the rack (if all would be great). Pavona is not even 2 weeks old. I do not understand, i checked the parameters they are all in limits. Calcium recently went up a little. I fed the corals yellow sno, I give ocean magik to the copepods this should be pretty close to sea biology on paper. I have also had polyfilter to check anything like copper and stuff and nothing showed up.

What is your parameters? Flow?

API test kits
ph is 8.0 or maybe a little more, but not 8.2
Ammonia 0.25 or less
Nitrite 0
Nitrate under 20 close to 10 ppm
Phosphate 0.25 ppm or less
dkh 12
calcium 500-520 (was 480-500 few days ago)

salinity 1.024 or 1.025 (based on Milwaukee, which I am disappointed at, since it could measure off by .002 +/- so you never know)

As for flow Reefwave 45 at 50% with random setting

More and more I am suspecting the water. I buy it at LFS pre-made, since I have been told it is "instant glory" since it is measured, tested and ready to go, so I do not have to worry much about parameters with my limited knowledge.

I will do a filter cleaning and water change this week around 10%ish just to try to lower the calcium and increase the ph. Maybe that will help.

Well, ph is now over 8.2, but dkh is 12 and calcium is over 550 (I think 600 if the scale is linear).
I opened the lid, which increased the ph over 3 days. Corals are still not better. Salinity is stable 1.025
I do not understand this, I thought by having ph going up, calcium will go down along with dkh.
