Help with Torch Coral


My torch coral is in trouble. I lost one head completely a few weeks back - just disappeared until only skeleton was left. I cut that head off and now I have one head that is not extending as far as the other two and is much lighter in color?

Tank/Water parameters are :
250 Liter's
pH - 8.1
Temp - 79
Amm - 0
Nitrate - 5
Phosphate - <0.03
Calcium - 375 ppm
Magnesium - 1345
Alk - 9 dKH
Salin - 1.025

Do you have any fish that might be picking on it?

You should lower the phosphate but probably not the problem, and slightly raise your calcium.
Is your water good, Rodi? make your own?

I don't know for sure, just thought this might help.

Thanks for the feedback

I do use RDOI water. My lights are not the best - Orbit Marine LED 23 Watts- 10 hours a day. Everything else in the tank doing ok- frogspawn, hammer coral, duncan etc...

Don't think anything is picking on it but I will look for that - I will also move its location and see if that helps
