    Purple Birds Nest?

    My tank has never be able to sustain sps. I was given this frag on Saturday.
    It's under T5HO, mid level, med flow. Great polyp extension. Will it color up?

    Purple Birds Nest?

    4wks. With max intensity at 20/30.
    PO4=0.05, NO2/NO3=0, CA 440, ALK=7.7, Mag=1400, Ph=8.0, Temp=79.2

    Today I've changed lighting schedule. 10min ramping for 10hrs to mimic sunrise/sunset, Max 30/50%

    Hello,
    Four weeks is plenty of time to have changed color. Changes in color for Seriatopora sp. due to lighting variation will generally occur in 7-10 days.

    Cheers,

    It's grown a lot but has begun looking worse. Slowly but surely losing pe & what color it had. I'm pretty bummed out actually. My first SPS and I really had hope to keeping others. If I can't keep a BN alive......

    Hello,
    I don't think it looks like it's on the verge of dieing from your picture. Perhaps it's time to try a little more light intensity.
