I understand. Every coral before I put in my main tank I flushed with tank water to possible wash that of. I will quarantine coral too in the future when I fix this.For 8 weeks. But come on guys, how many of you do this? Put corals in quarantine for 8 weeks. You see beautiful coral in store, you buy it and put in QT with usually worse light really just glass and water. You wait 8 weeks to see his beauty. But still that is way to do it. It is just sad what I have to go thru now.
