Brain coral in dirty water?
A few months back I got a good deal on a brain that was half dead and until recently it hasn't looked any better. The weird part is due to some stuff with my daughter (not going to get into it) I haven't been able to do any tank maintenance in a little over a month. I have s pretty big algae out break and although nothing looks to be stressed my brain has grown at least 6 or 7 new heads/ lobes what ever you want to call them over the old skeleton and over some algae. I was told by multiple sources that the best way to get my brain back to health was to cut off the old skeleton and that unless my water was perfect it wouldn't grow over the old skeleton. I don't have a band saw so I did my best with just a chisel and hammer. Anyway what does everyone think could this be stress related or does anyone think it could be enjoying this dirty water? I did a 50% water change and cleaned up all the algae last night
