Orange Guttatus Birdsnest Coral Die Off

The other day I noticed my ORP levels had jumped up 30 points, which is kind of unusual, so I began investigating.  The only thing that I could find was that my Orange Guttatus Birdsnest Coral (Seriatopora guttatus) frag was turning white.  My tank levels tested normal so I took the coral out of the tank. It’s a bummer to lose a coral but I would rather get it out before it caused further problems.

  1. Ahh, that’s too bad. I may not know much about saltwater but I do know corals are relatively expensive and are slow growers.

  2. Yeah but there’s not much you can do. You win some, you lose some.

  3. What a bummer! That was a very nice size.

  4. Hopefully I will not lose any more!
