                Nick, if you could acess a pix. that might help. If the condition has progressed w/o zeo-dosing, obviously, it's not zeo-related, & therefore, as Sean mentioned, a too harsh flow or photoburn, assuming your parameters have been stable. Bob

                    Hi Nick, that's a good question Brown corals do seem to be more resistant to light exposure but I've had some with tip loss in the past from too much direct flow. Bob

                        Nick, did you increase the flow during this time? It's difficult to pinpoint exactly the problem here, but from what I understand, if the coral continued to lose tissue in spite of not dosing any ZEOvit, then, non-zeo causes are at play. Best to place it down lower in your reef, until it recovers. Bob
