Acro bleached!!!

Acro bleached!!!

I recently got a new acro frag, but over night it bleached, and has now started to grow algae on it so has died .



but i was thinking could i get a frag off one of my colonies and super glue it onto one of the branches of this frag, and let it grow on, as wont it encrust over the frag and take the same form as it?

Just wondering as the frag has a really nice shape to it. I am very gutted about the frag as it was really nice white with blue tips, i think i put it up to near the light to quickly.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Personally I think it was not a simple bleaching, but RTN and I'd remove the frag skeleton from the system. If you were to glue another frag to it, it would encrust the skeleton, just like it would the LR, but it would not take on the frags shape.

yeah i think you may be right, as some of the frags i have taken have also done this and i have immediately after seeing them taken them out. It would be down to the frag beeing more suseptable to the rtn after beeing fragged then.

cool ill get rid of the frag and hope i dont get any more rtn. should i run carbon for a while?

It wouldn't hurt, but carbon will not remove the organisms that cause RTN, it might however remove substances that may weaken your corals to be susceptible
