Hey! Tried to find a post on this but couldn’t find anything — more LPS questions from me.
These wellso/Trachy are right next to several that are super happy. Per earlier post about meat corals I have not been feeding these corals adequately, so I am starting to do that now.
What would you recommend I try for these coral?
Low flow, lighting may be a little high ~ 150? Ill check par tomorrow
Parameters are stable but not necessarily ideal
Alk 6 ( increasing slowly) Sal 1.027 (lowering) , nitrate 16, phos 0.5, ca 400
Water temp has been a little wonkus for the last week but the corals have been receding and looking bad for over a month. Temp is back to normal
Thanks
First photo - this coral has receding on one side, similar to how plate corals recede.
Second photo- it’s hard to see in the photo, it barely inflates in the center and you can feel its skeleton through the skin.

These corals have been in the same system for over 7 months

I think the alk might also be bothering it. My trachy shows me when my alk doser gets jammed, mine doesn't like to be less than 7.5.
