Devil's Hand Coral
Earlier today I bought a Devil's Hand coral and put it in my 55g reef tank. A couple hours passed and I realized I didn't like it's placement so I decided to move it. Upon lifting the frag I discovered a bristleworm underneath it. I've never had bristleworms before and didn't want to deal with them. I picked it out and began removing the reef glue and bits of crushed coral from the bottom of the frag, where I found 3 more worms. I am fairly sure that the coral went through the center of the frag to the bottom where the bristleworms were living. I did remove some soft bits of material that were covered in crushed coral that may have been the bottom of the Devil's Hand. Will this kill the Devil's Hand or will it live? Thanks.
I wonder why tough corals are called hammers, and weak corals are called buttons...
