I'm getting burnt tips on my acro's. From what I've read it's usually due to KH fluctuations. Do you think? I've tried raising the KH. It's gone from 8.8 where it normally is to 10 and back down again in a week or so. Do you think that would cause it? I usually keep it 8.8, seems to be where it likes to be. Do you think that is too low?

Social D, I uped my flow cause I thought it might be a lack of flow. Now the flow is quite high. Not sure what the state of play is yet. How do you know what the right flow is?? I've got about 11000 liters in a 300 tank
I do admire you sps guys! Every time I sort something something else seems to be wrong!

Always have indirect flow with Sps It keeps them happy, Might even be a fish/crab any chance of a pic?

What stock do you have fish wise and what do you feed the tank on a daily basis?
In my experience dropping alk from 10 down to 8 in a week is nothing to worry about.I have let my system drop from 12 to 8 in a day naturaly and raised it from 6 to 9 in a day with no problems when i was getting my balling-lite dialed in.
A pic could be a real big help to us as Tim said.

The first is the Nana which I think you can work out the white tips. Second is a healthy fire coral ant the third is unknown to me but also has the white tips.

Are you saying it could be nipping or nipping as well as some other factor?
Chemistry wise the testable chemistry is fine. Obviously other things could be going on.
Flow. The corals are in the corners of the tank so maybe the flow isn't great there. I have just beefed that up so I'll see what happens.
I do have a majestic. I know he pics my LPS so they have been sumped. I've not seen him nibble on the SPS but wouldn't put it past him, seems to nibble at everything else. Come to think of it I think growth has tailed off since putting him in. He's coming out in a few weeks when my new tank turns up.
Is there anything chemistry wise that leads to the white tips?

I'm trying to keep them occupied by feeding them extra Nori.
