I’m not sure what’s going on here. I have several pieces in the tank but this one is going bald. Alk. 8.9-9.3, Ca 445, Mg 1220, NO3 0, PO4 .08 I’ve been working on getting nitrates up, I don’t like the disparity between them and phosphates. What gives? Thought it might be too much light so I’ve moved it. Thanks for the help!

Lights appear quite bright which theyre not fond of. Can also be food that settled on it or even lack of food.
Moderate light and water flow is preferred.

Figured it might be the light. Thanks for the input. This tank is my first shot at keeping corals. Learning the ropes and how to treat different genera/species before I do a long term set up. Doing pretty good so far. Advice is appreciated!
