Frogspawn

Has anyone ever seen a frogspawn do this? The brown used to cover the entire thing. Now it's coming off.

Ok. I got it a week ago and it started growing a new head a few days ago. When I got home today it was shedding the brown.

That isn't normal. Check all of your parameters ASAP. What lighting do you have? Where is it located vertically? How much flow do you have on it?

The flesh sometimes recedes as they grow but never melts away like that. Almost like brown jelly disease but can't be certain.

Yeah mine never melted it just never had it and is fine, however if you see the flesh melting and like peeling id say brown jelly.

Parameters are fine.
0 ammonia
0 nitrite
<5 nitrate
Calcium 460
It is the lower middle of the tank with moderate flow.

Ph? Phosphates? Alk? Lighting? If the flesh is breaking down like that it isn't healthy. Just hope it recovers.

Ok lighting is fine. What percent are they running at? Might be too much lighting. I would recommend putting coral in the sand bed to let it light acclimate.
