Today I removed all the corals from their frag plugs or rocks that there were attached to and then reattached them directly to my rocks.
On removing the rock that had the Torch Coral I dropped it and the Torch collided with the Kenya Tree coral damaging some of the Torch's polyps. I gave all the corals an Iodine dip and also dosed the tank.
The Torch is looking much happier this evening, so fingers crossed. The Kenya tree is fine.
I fragged the Montipora Hirsuta into three small pieces that where the remaining healthy parts that survived the postal ordeal. I've attached these to rubble and they are currently in the sump.
I also fragged the Kenya Tree coral by removing one of the hang branches and attached this new piece a small bit of rock and that is not on the opposite side of the tank.
Lastly I separated some of the Zoas and reattached them to my live rock.

Had large algae outbreak covering most of the glass and the equipment. Algae was mostly green and scrubbing the algae of the glass resulting in what looked like macroalgae flowing in the tank. I've also noticed more coralline algae.
Also had to change filter sock as it was blocked.
