    Default whats causing these to die?

    Hi Guys,
    not sure what these corals are called. but i had hundreds of them on the rock and on the side of the tank. And slowely over the last 6 months they are closing and dying one by one. Almost like something is eating them or im not sure what it is?
    I have dipped them but doesnt seem to help?

    Button polyps.

    Depends on alotta of factors. Tank parameter? How's long you been up and running? What are the other tank: inhabitants?

    lack of water flow can cause rot for these polyps.

    There has to be some sort of underlying issue, I put at least a colony a month in my sump to kill them off, they spread like weeds generally...
    Don't look to anyone to give you a shot... You must create your own opportunity
