About a week and a half ago I finished a tank over-haul to get rid GHA, and reduce my bioload. Most of my corals exhibited a bit of fading but I think they'll recover. All except my Blue ridge coral.

Its not a very good pic but if you look at it, (top center) you should be able to see what I mean. It's color is patchy, and it even appears to have brown algae on it.


I've never really had much luck with this coral right from the start. It has never really colored up and rarely has polyp extention. I does grow at a fair pace though. I've always had it up high, and in a fair amount of flow.

Can anyone else who has better luck than me help me out with this one? Do I have it in the right area? Will it recover? Any pics of a healthy Bl;ue ridge would help.

I always thought a healthy blue ridge was brown. The inner skeleton is blue which you only see when it dies or you break a piece off.

If that's the case than I'm in trouble because there is a fair amount of blue exposed on mine right now.
