1st is nice the 2nd looks like it might be an open brain that is not doing good... All the tissue on the oter edge is dead and missing.. I could be wrong but thats what it looks like to me..

That`s what I would say also that it looks like an open brain that has receeded for some reason. Candy cane is fine. You dont have an angel in your tank do you.

No I don't have an angel in my tank yet and probably wont from what i keep reading. The tank that i got that brain out of wasnt exactly the best tank in the world so i'm hoping that it will get better. Is there anything i can do to help it out? Does anybody know what the best placement for them? I also had to move it around a lot yesturday because of my snails and my hammer coral. I didn't want them to be too close to each other and my stupid snails kept nocking over my hammer. I have that fixed now so everything should be okay for a while.

Brains need to be on the sand. They have problems most of the time if they are on the LR. Most I`ve seen they are alone on the bottom on the sand. That`s where mine is. Check my gallery to see where mine is.

I agree with everyone else. However, it has only been a day so it is hard to pass judgement. Gove them time. I would move the brain to the substrate and make sure you "dust" it on a regular basis. If sand gets in it they can becme irritated.

Okay, I moved it to the sand now. The only bad thing is i want an anemone and now that this is down on the sand i dont think that will be possible. Now I'm torn between a coral tank and an anemone tank with no brains or at least ones that have to be in the sand. I like the brains though so I think I'll keep it. In the mean time is there anything to help the brain heal or help its natural process any? How will i know if the coral is being irritated?
