Hey everyone. I have attached a picture of my frogspawn (left side) and what it looked it before (right side). Mind you, I moved the tank roughly 3 months ago and lost 4 corals and this one is looking awful! All my other corals are fine and growing.

What can I do to remedy this situation?! Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also, I just used reef roids last night and direct fed it.

Very hard to tell with the picture you posted. Just looks like it has less polyp extension. Could be lighting, nutrients, flow. There's many factors.

I can post more pictures for sure. I mean I'm not doing anything different than I was before I moved. Hes been like this for about 2 months now.

When the tentacles were fully extended, did they dance about in the flow? I’ve seen many people put euphyllia on the bottom where they don’t get enough flow and this happens. They use the flow to clean out bacteria that collect in the tentacles.

My friend sent me a video of some torch in the ocean. They were getting absolutely blasted by flow. A huge colony of them. After seeing that, it made me rethink everything.

Your temp is a little high. Have your nitrates always been about the same?

My temp ranges from 77.5(during the non summer months) up to79.5-80 during the summer. I do have a chiller which is just for safety set at 80. Never really had any issues.... do you normally keep your temp near 80?
I always keep it between 78.5-79.5/80 if its really hot out, so ya kinda
