Unhappy Burned Toadstool?!

I have had my 45gal SW up for a year now and everything is thriving. My quaestion is: It appears that one of my heaters came loose from the glass and got close enough to my Toadstool leather coral to damage it ( burned?). The head of the coral has a diameter of at least 6" and the damaged section is on the edge about a Ĺ" square.
Do I need to do anything like remove the damaged section or will the coral heal on its own?

well leathers are a fairly easy to cut just take out of tank and take some scissors to it its a scary feeling at first but you get used to it i would cut the spot off if it seems as if it wont come back i dont have any experience with one being burned i would think that spot has had it right now. But its very easy to cut the spot off i iodine dip might be a good idea after the cut. to keep infections off. kent marine iodine from lfs

special thanks to melosu58 , roka , thincat,CaptainAhab (and many more who i will list later as i find thier names so i can spell them lol ) for i would not have the tank or the knowledge i have about my tank if not for them.

I agree. Just keep an eye out and if it looks like it`s going south then go ahead and frag it. Leathers are fairly easy to frag.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
