Hiya,
I bought 2 Leather Finger Corals about 2 weeks ago, one seems fine but the other is just flopped over, I've tried it in low flow and medium flow, near the top of the tank and half way down but its made no difference, the tank is 500mm deep and I have T5 lights with reflectors, water tests are pH 8.3, Phosphate 0, Nitrite 0, Ammonia 0, Nitrate 5, Anybody any Ideas.

Glen.
ps, the brown spots on my clown fish have now faded,

What is the salinity and what are you measuring it with? Sometimes leathers take a while to acclimate and get happy.

Which T5 fixture is it?

salinity is OK but what I needed to know about the fixture is the wattage and the kind of reflector...leathers like light.
