Scoly coral

I just got this scoly from a friend who was not taking care of it can it be brought back with care. You can see the skeleton around the sides by it is eating good. Just curious your thoughts.

Looks good. If you have proper water, that thing should bounce back no problem.

Medium light, and feed it meaty foods when the lights go out. Put it on the sand bed, or close to it.

It will grow over the dead part in time. I have a few I'm rehabbing right now. I believe feedings go a long way for these guys.

I'm having to keep mine under a half cut Gatorade bottle due to my cleaner shrimp and maroon clown . They have come to notice when I feed it that there's food there and now constantly pick at it and not letting it inflate . Any advice on how to remedy this situation .

You are doing the best thing you can do....other than removing the shrimp and fish that is.

scolys are from austrailia and the shipping costs from there have skyrocketed thus the price going up on all ausi coral. Shipping is by the pound and you have to put those in bags so to overnight 6 scolys you're going to use a box that probably weighs 30 pounds. Its the shipping costs that are driving up our coral prices...
