Hey guys. This is a bit strange. I have a digitata that just suddenly in the last 2 days started, well I don't know what is going on with it. It looks like a crown of thorwns starfish is eating it. Look at the pic here and see what you think. It's not happening to any of the other corals just this one.
Ok, I got an ID on what is happening to the coral and I think I have figured out what caused it. This coral is suffering from RTN (Rapid Tissue Necrosis), a few days ago my SCWD crapped out on me and it was flowing in only one direction and caused a sand storm that covered this corals base up. Apparently this prevented the coral from aspirating and could have led
to the RTN. Either way I am going to pull the coral out and frag off the good parts and hope for the best.
I am going to do a PWC
and I have activated carbon running on the system just as precautions.
Just thought I would let you know what I found out...
