You can isolate it to a rock where it can't spread.

If you have done this already can you post a picture? I'm a very visual person.

I actually murdered all of my xenia. It was on a rock and a hermit crab or something flipped it over. I was trying to get it to grow up my overflow.

So the crab or something did it not you? Well that's a relief because If you killed it I have no chance of keeping it alive!

Yes definitely haha. Coral can be weird IMO. I have SPS and an anemone happy yet my GSP are doing terribly.

Awe poor GSP. So... Can I start cycling the tank before I get the live sand and rock delivered or do I have to wait? And how do I cycle it? I'm breaking the traditional ways and starting my first tank ever as a salt water/nano reef.

The bacteria colonizes on the rock so you need that in the tank. When you get the rock, just put a raw shrimp from the store and put it in the tank (preferably in pantyhose so it doesn't make a mess). Just leave it in there for a few days.

What causes corals to melt away? How long will they last before they melt?

The cycle does take longer. The shrimp just builds up ammonia. And corals can melt away from bad water quality or sometimes for no reason. Corals can outlive you as long as you care for them properly.
