Moveing it to lower light area would not hurt it. How does it look when lights are out ?? Should have feelers galore out ! When I ran T5's I always use to change one bulb at a time,one per week to allow for a smooth transition to the higher par of new bulbs
When my candy canes (any LPS really) look like that it's usually nitrates or phosphates. Any ideas what those numbers are? A couple extra waterchanges often takes care of it. Color loss is more indicative of light shock in my experience.
Tested no3 which is .0 as for po4's I don't have a proper test. But I can't see it being present is any dangerous levels. I'm only feeding frozen these days, RO/DI WITH 0 TDS. Besides, all other LPS and softies are doing great, well with the exception of my zoas-lol.
Tom, when I dose my 2part I add it to my return chamber which is just about level with my MP10. Trying for the highest flow area. But right below my MP10 is the CandyCane. Could the CC be getting irritated by the 2part? See pic...
