Frogspawn dying??

My favorite coral might be dying! tank got really hot today without us knowing and went up to 89. We are bringing it down to a safe temp but the frogspawn's mouth was wide open and white stuff was comming out of it... Looked almost like a rock.... Is it dying?? thanks

This morning it looks a little bubbly where his mouth is... Everything else looks good. Any help?

I don't think there's really much you can do other than keeping parameters in check.

You can try filling an ice cream bucket of saltwater and freeze it than use that ice to cool down your tank.
. Too much freshwater ice can knock down salinity. I

when my hammer died its tentacles were retracted all but a little you could see at the top. They did begin to release white stuff and died the next day....No clue why the other poly is still alive just odd.

Sound like it expelled its intestines. If thats the case then it likely done for. Just be glad its only your frogspawn, could have been much worse. Whole tank could have crashed. Do you know why it overheated?

My tank hit 86 yesterday. I'm running my air conditioner all day while I'm at work to keep the temp down.

Yeah, 86 definitely won't work for long! I am forced to keep my AC at 75, in Fla, to keep my tank at 78-79. To not force the purchase of a $800 chiller.
Hope you can keep it down Sniper.

I feel your pain,...we get pretty hot out here in San Diego too,..90-100 lots and lots of days and it's a killer to watch your tanks temp steadily grow up and up,... Ive also used the frozen saltwater trick ( but it works better on a smaller tank ).... I ordered my chiller yesterday!!
