Have done a few w/c. Do you think it will recover?. Is it possible the brown jelly has caused my other corals not to open. It's been a week now. Got my water tested yesterday before w/c and they said water was perfect. Will do a small change tomorrow.

No. that's not possible. LFS's in my experience test with strips. If they don't, they just look for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. Alk could be your problem, and could be ph.

They did not use strips they done it with test tubes etc... They did about 5 different ones and all were good . Although they did say as I have cyno and some algae it can give you a false reading.(this I knew) was hoping they would pick up some thing my test kit had not . So do you think w/c will sort this and hand picking the cyno out.? If it's a bacteria problem will my w/c eventually solve this issue? Do you also think my other corals will be ok?

How long have you had the toadstool? If it's more than a month, it's because it doesn't like your tank.

It's been about a month. After a week it grew a film over it and then it came out even better then before. If it does not like my tank then does it mean I can't keep corals? Or is this one just being awkward? Really want a reef tank and not fish only.

It just means a parameter is out of whack, or flow, or lighting...something is not ideal. Leathers do shed a coating every now and then too. I do not know why they do this.

Done a small w/c today . Will continue with this every two or three days and fingers crossed it all gets well soon. Thanks for your help on this one. No doubt I will be seeking more advice in the near future.

Hi,I now have bristle worms that even look sick! One half of them is pink and the other half is black? The toadstall is now covered in brown jelly.

What salt mix are you using? How exactly are you mixing the water and doing water changes?
