I have a 5 maxima's and 2 squamosa's in my 60 gallon reef and they all seem to loose their brilliant colors after a few weeks. I have a 250w Giesemann and 30w Actinic each on for 10 hours/day. The water tests out perfect and I feed DT's every day. I use the GARF method for supplementation adding Seachem products (Reef Builder, Reef Plus, Reef Calcium, Reef Complete and Lugol's iodine. Salinity is ~1.024.
Pictures are attached with the difference in color from day 1 to day 21. Please let me know if you can help me correct this problem. The other coral (Leathers, frogspawn, acropora, mushrooms. etc.) are all doing fine.
