Got a crapload of SPS corals off a guy that I am going to try to bring back to life. It is horrible. And I know why they are dying off- all his crap that I got is covered in manjano. Coral dips done and I scraped off the manjano. They are in a separate tank right now so I can make sure I got all of them off. I still have another 3 buckets or coral to clean and dip. I even got a 6 inch maxima that had 3 manjano on it. Ugggg. Why can't people take care of their tanks????

There's a lot. 6 buckets. I already have 4 hours invested and probably another 4 or 5 to go before they are all in a tank.

Words of wisdom- when scraping off manjano- be careful because they squirt really far. Lol

You'll be done before you know it. It sounds like your doing a great job though!
