Crabs eat things that are dying or dead. Bald spot = dying area that is likely to spread.

did you say this recession has stopped or is it still going? how fast is it moving?
it's not the aptasia. i could understand if the die off was on the very bottom, right next to the anemone, but those tentacles didn't touch the middle of that frag.

It has slowed way down, seems to almost have grown back on the bottom but the top though is still moving up, almost like the sopt is moving up as a whole. I cant edit this picture, so if you can see the piece sticking up like a cylinder in the middle. There are two of them, the one on the bottom was completly surrounded at its base a few days ago. Now its not and it lived through it.

Strange, but how would I frag it if thats the best thing to do?

I don't think i would try and frag a piece off yet. If the RTN has slowed then i would give the coral a chance to recover. I have found that adding a little extra flow of the coral seems to help. Don't blast it or anything just a good solid flow seems to help. The rest of the coral looks very healthy and I think it will recover on its own.

Got home from work a little while ago and noticed this. Anyone know what it is. Is it time to give up and frag it?
