Thanks to a move to another state, I've been off the forum for quite some time. I'm soooo happy to see you all still rescuing!!! Unfortunately I've had to scale back my rescue operations (went from a 1000 sq ft room to a small corner in our house), but I hope to still tag along with you all.

Hello!

Any experience with beta glucan or vitamin c?

I know the risks but I picked up another "sick" wall hammer frag from LFS on Sunday.



Arrived to LFS in poor shape. Was originally ~ 4" but receded down to this. LFS cut off dead skeleton and has been stable in this state for about three weeks, so I picked it up.

It's on a shelf with a screen above it to keep it lower light. I started dosing vitamin c to try and save a previous wall hammer frag, and while that may have been too far gone and didn't survive, my tank overall has never looked better.

Under full light this coral is highlighter yellow, really awesome color and I think worth the risk.

Help with Trachyphyllia

Good evening, everyone. I have this Trachyphyllia that has been looking sorry for a few weeks now, but it all came to a head today when my wife noticed that the flesh is starting to peel off the skeleton, as it has become visible in this picture. I have done an iodine dip earlier today, and trimmed off some of the sharper parts of the skeleton, glued the left flesh back onto the skeleton and now I have only the actinic lights on. Is there hope that this poor Trachyphyllia could bounce back? I have been following this thread and so far the specimens have shown a lot more flesh on the skeleton. Thanks for your input and help.

Hey MechEng99 and other coral rescuers, I have a frogspawn that I absolutely love. Long story short it fell onto the sand when I was out of town and now there is a small spot where the flesh has receded. You can see 3 to 4 of the thin skeletal walls that are perpendicular to the outside skeleton. It's been about 4 days and the frogspawn still hasn't inflated like it normally does and I am curious if I should do something proactive...? The damage is a little worse than the picture shows

update- I turned my pumps off after the lights went off so I could do an inspection and the damage is a lot worse than I thought. The skeleton is exposed around probably a good quarter of the head. There is no infection or anything, the skin is just no longer there and is receeded. It doesn't look to good.. I appreciate any advice.

I am loosing two aussie Hammers. Not sure why. Everything else looks great and growing, but these have been slowly dying back.One is a Wall Hammer.

Now, I only have 4 heads or so alive.

I have Coral RX, H2O2, Iodine on hand.

What would you do?

I have to say, I have followed this thread from its beginning and have picked up some very useful tips here. Now I'm in a position of trying to save a trachyphillia whose tissue started to recede and is not eating or showing any feeding response. It has been Iodine dipped and placed in a bare-bottom QT tank under very low flow for the past 5 days. Tissue recession appears to have stopped and it is expanding and contracting, but it's not sending out any feeding tentacles. It is not bleached and the remaining 90% of its tissue looks healthy. I believe given time and the right conditions, it will resume feeding eventually and repair itself.

Here's my question: I have noted the typical advice of low light and low flow in this thread; but if the coral will not take any food, then light and zooxanthellae are the only things keeping it alive, and it seems like it should have normal lighting. Can anybody expound on their experiences with lighting and feeding?

Whelp... I'm BAAAAACK (seriously this time!) I wasn't able to do much rescuing over the last couple years, but I've got a tank full now. How about some eye candy to get us back on track?

Sure... I added an SPS, a fish, and an anemone (and the coral are probably repeat photos), but who's keeping track? Let's have fun. Thanks for all the years of this!
