2nd Coral!

I picked up my second coral yesterday . Its a green torch and it's probably the diameter of a quarter. My first coral I bought several days ago is yellow polyps. I did however score an awesome mushroom rock the Guy at the lfs sold as live rock. Anybody know care for these corals? I'm just now transitioning into a reef. I have a coralife t8 10000k daylight and a marineland hidden led strip with white and blue light. Is this sufficient?? Any comments welcome.

Oh here's a couple pics of the torch now under the blue leds. 20 bucks sound like a score? Hope it likes its new home!

Yea I read they can be brighter I don't really know. I do know my 10000k t8 is a lot brighter than my old 5000k t5. Plus the leds are pretty bright too. I'm concerned now that it may have that brown jelly disease which is really no good. I think it may die. Ill get a pic of it on here when I get home.

If it has the brown jelly disease try to frag it and hopefully you can save it put the frag in a different tank so it dont get sick also

It looks like its only got one living head, in which case you cant frag it.

I had brown jelly disease on my torch. Try and siphon off as much as you can and ensure it gets good flow. I lost 6 of the 8 heads on my torch. Over the last 3 months my torch has rebounded and grown a few new heads. Good luck.

Well its screwed I guess. I syphoned the jelly out. It covered half of it and its very small. It also came out of its rock placement and went floating away. I jade no idea what to do with it it wouldn't hold back is its original rock so I stuck it in a small hole in my LR. What should I do???? Is it a lost cause or is there something I can do? PLEASE HELP!
