    Default Chalice help!

    Sweet mummy eye is like changing. All the green is turning into the eye color, and then turning a drab orange color. Everything in tank is fine all parameters are great. What would cause this to happen. Other chalice in the tank r awesome.

    I have all over in two different tanks. Sorry I didnt mention that. Not getting better or worse. Just an ugly orange blob. If it doesnt die do u think it will ever come back.

    Sounds like it could be getting too much light. Most chalices are fairly low light corals. They can be acclimated to higher light but will often change to a non desirable color.
