Another kenya tree ?

I have 2 small kenya trees that have done fairly well. But they recently have shrunk up to nothing and haven't changed. My parameters are average. Is there a particular parameter that if not correct will greatly effect them negatively? The only thing I can think of is my water temp has risen a little since the air isn't on all the time now.

It's normal for Kenyas to shrink up and look like they're one step away from death for a couple of days....then they will expand and look even better than before.

If they stay shrunken for more than a couple of days, then something is seriously wrong.

Well, give us the rundown. Certainly if you've got ammonia of 0.5, well, that's your problem. Same with alkalinity of 1, pH of 7.5, etc.

Tell us about your tank, parameters, flow, light, feeding, supplements...

These are photosynthetic corals that like moderate flow.
