Saving my galaxy

Earlier this week I come home to all of my corals freaking out. After doing some tests my copper was at .5. Scary number I know.

All of the corals I transferred to the frag tank are looking better but the galaxy coral. Half of it is covered in a pink film. Click image for larger version

I`m wondering if it is the brown slime disease. Google that. I`m thinking iodine bath.

That looks like brown jelly to me. Also want to ensure all of that 'jelly' is removed from the system.

I removed all visible 'jelly' last night. But when I came downstairs to check on the tank half of the jelly came back. Would it be possible to frag this coral

You can, but a coral dip will be necessary to try to solve the problem. In such dip, you'll want to remove as much of the jelly as possible to avoid it returning.

I`ve always had good luck with iodine baths for that.
