Sorry for the late reply! How's it doing now? What do you mean by "CA/KH/Mg/K/B/I2 are all good"? What exactly are the levels?

If it isn't taking food, don't force it. You can coax it to eat by turning off all flow and covering it with food (use a bottle if you have creatures that'll steal the food), but remove the uneaten food and turn the flow back on after about 20 minutes.

Definitely get those nitrates down. That alone usually won't kill an LPS, but it doesn't help either.

Any idea exactly *why* the coral wasn't doing well in your dad's tank?

See my homepage for more information on rescuing coral!
