It can spread. I don't know what you should do because I don't know what is causing it.

All I can think of is the plane ride to my city. It didn't come in a heat pack. It came from florida to pennsylvania, which was about a 1 1/2 hour flight. Not enough flow maybe? I have good polyp extension.

It's possible a temp swing could have effected it. Flow, alk swings or other parameters, etc. Hard to say for sure. Acropora is not as easy as the other sps.

Ya, it stinks.. I guess I'll just see how it goes. If it gets worse ill super glue, it's too small to frag.

Sometimes it helps to cut away the dead tissue. Hard to do in this case, but when I have a colony dying, I frag it up and put pieces all over the tank in different lighting and flow.

I could break it into three.. That's about all. I have the supplies to do it. You think I should?

What's a substitute for bone cutters? Scissors? I can't take it out of the tank...

So I used wire cutters to frag it, and it turned out well. I got 4 frags, including the mother colony, in a rack now. I do not know where to place them. Here is a pic of my tank. Is there any place anyone would recommend? I can move stuff if I need to.
