    coral

    Hello, it looks like your frags have either been bleached by to much light or are dieing because they have not got enough light!! What lights are you currently using??

    coral

    Also try to get rid of the cyano (the red stuff). This can cover corals, in fact your whole tank.
    Must admit I cant see any life on the birds nest but there is a little on the other ( not sure what it is )
    Its simply a case of snapping off or dremelling off a healthy piece then superglue to a rock or similar.

    coral

    The first one has some life clinging on, but probably fading away quite fast.. the second is an ex-parrot, looks well and truly dead.

    Unless the tank is less than 18" deep it's unlikely that T5s would provide enough output to sustain these types of stony coral - unless the corals are right at the top of the tank. I imagine they have died due to lack of light, I can't image T5s bleaching these corals.

    If you want to give the first coral the best chance get it up to the top of the tank, working it up slowly so as not to shock it in one go.. raise it halfway and leave it for 3 or 4 days, then raise it again. I'm not sure you'll have much success as it looks quite far gone, but sometime corals can surprise you.

    What size is the tank? Any full tank pictures showing the complete tank?
