Water Parameters?

All were right on the other day except slight ammonia .025. Have not
done them today

Ammonia won't cut it in a Reef tank, kills corals pretty good. Nitrite is a close second.

All others corals are great infact i am friends with someone that has had a reef tanks for years and she was here last nite and said my tank looked better than hers but she wasnt sure about the sun coral. I moved it a couple times and read up more on them . Put it where it would get more flow. Wish the pic would load

Not trying to sound rude bohmert but Reefing is just telling it like it is. Gotta get that ammonia to 0. Also, I was told that the easiest ways to really piss off your corals is to be constantly fiddling with them. SOmetimes you just gotta let them be for awhile. I've got the most tempremental green star polyp on the face of the earth. It will be out for 3 days and not come out for the next 3-4 days.

I am not mad at him in no way i respect his advice I was just giving more information . Please dont turn my comments around!!!!! Reef just giving more info. As far as I go NEVER take my feedback negative. Sully you too. Please. I know alot of peopledo but that is not my way!!!!!!!

Your good with the move, they are non photosynthetic corals, so most try to put them under shade to see them more often. Give him a week or so to see what happens there. As Sully stated, once you've moved em, don't do it again for a bit, they tend to get a lil upset about it.

Sorry, my post wasn't meant to come across like that at all. The typed word sometimes never comes across the keyboard the way it's meant to. :BIGhappy:
