Hey...im new to thge forums ...my name is nicole. I currently have a 56 bowfront stocked with only 1 lonely royal gramma. I recently purchased 2 deepwater yellow gorgonians....then are in relatively low lighting and a low water flow. When i first put them in the parameters of the water were fine but then i had to add about 4 gallons of new water and my nitrites went up a little bnit. I put cycle in and everything is fine again however, my gorgonians HAVE NOT opened up since i purchased them...they were open in the store when i got them but no luck in almost 2 weeks. I have moved then to different spots and even tried adjusting the flow and lighting. Yesterday when i picked them up to move again i noticed a translucent fleshy like skin coming off of them...so pretty much i wanna know if that means they are goners???? They were so pretty but i am afraid i have killed them...nitrites possibly???
