Unfortunately Brown Jelly disease often kills the infected coral. The best thing you can do if it is brown jelly is to frag off the infected head. Brown jelly disease affects many LPS corals, and it can spread to other corals.

What causes brown jelly disease. The only thing different about that frag than the others I got that same day was that the core skeleton was cut really short

No one really knows what causes it, or why it kills corals. From some studies done it appears that brown jelly is made up of mostly beneficial organisms that already multiply naturally in a reef tank. How or why it attacks corals is not understood exactly to my knowledge.

Nah i dont think it would do anything. Only way ive ever dealt with it is by siphoning out any brown jelly you see with and airline tubing and by fragging off the affected head(s).

If you have a QT tank that would be a good idea to help prevent it from spreading to other corals in the tank.

Well bad news I lost one of my acans from brown jelly disease. Can't understand it the 2 others I got at the same time are doin well. Poorly fragged I think, the skeleton was cut really close to the tissue.

When fragging acans its hard to avoid all tissue sometimes but usually in will not harm the frag and it will heal and recover. However if brown jelly is in the tank tissue damage can make them more susceptible to being infected i have found.
