    Default Chalice HELP!!

    One of my chalices isn't doing well!
    Last night polyps were out for feeding and it was doing fine.
    This morning it has a little die off the top corner part of it.
    Here's a pic



    Every single other coral is doing fine, lps and sps. Including all other chalices doing fine.

    Tank parameters:
    Alk: 9.8dkh
    Cal: 420
    Mag: 1400
    Salinity: 1.025
    Temp: 77-78
    Phos: .03ppm
    Nitrate: 4ppm

    I moved it over to a less lit area and less flow area of the tank..

    What could be the problem?
    Should I do a water change?

    Any advice on what I should do to try to save it? Dip in iodine? Coral revive? Leave it be?

    Thanks in advance

    Chalices are tough. Do you spot feed it?

    Is this the first time you did so, or routine? Asking because chalices /lps tend to like a little dirtier water than what your parameters are

    I've been feeding chalices and any other lps that could eat frozen or fauna Marin lps pellet food. I have several other chalices. Many that are not Frags and all others are ok

    If it gets worse... super glue the dying part... lots of it. Scott taught me that trick and I saved a couple chalices by doing that. They were just getting worse and worse.

    Cover the dying part, and a little on the flesh thats still there. Good luck.
