You'll have to excuse the terrible picture and the dirty water, I just cleaned the glass and chucked a bunch of rotifers in

Basically I've tested my water thoroughly for 2 days and I'm sitting with good water, my alkalinity is on the higher side at 12 but from what I've read that's fine, calcium and magnesium is good and my narrates and nitrites are fine.

I went to bed on Monday and this torch was thriving and beautiful and I've come down in the morning and it's just gone!

Hi,

It looks like it is, sorry to say. They are fairly finicky and not an easy LPS to keep.

Can't tell much from the picture, a better picture of the coral from the front of the tank and maybe a video might show more. Also a picture showing the whole tank.

What is the ammonia and salinity of the tank?

How long has the tank been set up for?
How long have you had the coral?

Have you added anything in the 2 weeks before this happened?
What did you do to the tank on Sunday and Monday just before it went like this?
Did you have any visitors over around Sunday or Monday?

What other fish and corals are in the tank?
Are there any corals next to this one?

Yes, sorry to say that torch is completely dead. Torches are extremely tricky creatures and can die with the slightest variation in parameters, temperature, flow, or lighting.


What are all of your parameters?
