    Hi, I'm new to the reef tank, but not new to the reef keeping hobby. My last few tanks have all been nano reefs, however I just purchased a 55 gallon(tall, not long. Unusual, I know.) I will be transferring all of my zoas(maybe 5 or 6 different kinds) from one of my nanos into this tank, but...

    Well I think my plate coral is dying. It was doing awesome for the past 2-3 months since I got it. Then one morning it looks... well...not good. I have a bi-colored chromis that decided that underneath the plate was a good hiding / sleeping spot for a couple of days. Thats when it happened...

    Our green fungia hasn't been eating the past few days, and our clown fish would always eat the food off him and kinda irritate him, so we put him in a little cover to hopefully see if he would start eating, but he still didn't..
