I was wondering if anyone had any tricks when doing water changes.
I have some corals that are up high in my tank, so when I do a water change they are not in the water any ideas?

is it ok to be out of the water?

If you have a sump you can drain the water from it. My corals are exposed when I do water changes. Just don't let Euphyllia get caught high and dry as the trapped water weight in the tissue can kill them.

I think most corals should be fine for a short period. When fragging things I've had them out for a minute or so & been fine.
