Just got this open brain and the yellllowish green was a little bit more then it is in the pic. But I bought it with the white area but now it is growing. I spot feed it and all my other corals are doing great.

is the picture take with full actinic on? Can you tell us what kind of lighting and your tank dimonsion? The neon green kind of worry me a bit. Do you see the brain open up when lights on or do you still see all the skeleon of the coral?

then I am afraid the answer is yes that it is not doing that well. I am suprise to hear you only got white in day time as coral does need lots blue spectrum. Does the open brain like this when you purchase it ? (showing skeleton etc?)

Have u tried to use a Turkey baster and blow the brown spots off the exposed skeleton more then likely its algae and it will need to come off the coral inorder for it to heel its self.....
