I hear you. I didn't realize how great hammers were until I got a wall one. The branching is cool...but man, the wall is great. It being gold only amplifies it more.

It could possibly heal, or it could get brown jelly disease and die off. keep an eye for it, and frag off the part that has it if so. Good luck.

I'm staying optimistic... Lookin much better.




There are 2 small areas on the edge of the coral that you can tell are slightly damaged/retracted...

If you can remove those weird hands, it might feel a lot more comfortable.

The only thing making them weird is that they're both right hands... Golfing must be difficult.

Those look like Right Hand Nudibraches! They will poke a coral to death I would remove them immediately. They could spawn a Left Hand Nudi and start choking every thing out. I have faith they week recover fine, they don't look too bad.

Ok so I was able to evict those Right Hand Nudibranches... Took a while but they're gone.

Brown jelly disease... Is that something that will manifest quickly or show small signs at first? Didn't know if I would wake up one morning and need to remove the coral because it's toast after seeing it look ok the night prior..??

BJD will come on pretty quickly and kill about a head or inch of wall a day. Sometimes a Lugols dip can arrest it, but you will have to be careful about removing the infected coral...the brown jelly will easily blow all over the tank and possibly infect other lps.

Brown jelly is a nasty one. If you see it I would remove the uninfected part from it quickly. By the looks of the photo you may be fine though, just keep an eye on it.

Yea I think it will be ok, just have never dealt with it before so just trying to educate myself a bit. The coral looks almost 95% back to itself...
