If it came into contact with air there's not much you can do for it now

If you were going to frag which I`m not really sure you can It has to be done under water. Is that spot growing or it staying the same size?

A little info on why air can not be exposed. You`ll also see that they are for experts only.

Did the lfs make it come into contact with air? If they did then you can probably get a refund. If it's your fault it will probably starve and you'll be out whatever you paid for it. Was it 100% exposed?
