    I notice 2 of my large sps loosing their flesh.

    It seems as two of my large coral is loosing it skin.

    The thing is, on the outside, it looks perfectly fine but if you look closely inside all of the branches, you can notice that alot of the branches has died off.
    What could cause this??
    Too much lighting?
    Red bug?

    Something is eating it.. i dont know.

    Can you give us more info? How long has the tank been running, what are your water parameters, are these new corals, recently added? Lighting? Can you see any actual "bugs"?

    Can you post a pic?

    flow? is there good flow around those to corals? alk? I found one of my corals was very sensitive to low ALK. it was just hanging on for a year and I recently started to bring my ALK up and it started showing life.
