i double check no3 and po4, both r 0. They coral is doing ok so far, color is coming back and I can see the growth.

Do you think it is a kind of bacteria colony. I read some post they said bacterial booming can cause this.

Thanks

Thank you, I would give the following dosing regimen a try:

Bak 4 drops2 x weekly
Start3 0.4ml/2 x daily
SP 4 drops/ day

Xtra 2 ml/2 x weekly
Coral booster 2ml/2 x weekly
AAHC 1 drop/2 x weekly
B-B 4ml/1 x weekly
PIF 2 drops/ week.
CV 4 drops/2 x weekly.

Coral snow 4ml 2 x weekly
Zeozym once a week

I am really not sure what it is but from the pictures I it looks more like any kind of algae. Does herbivore eat it ?

thanks so much.

I would like to know,for example, if split CV into 2drops 4 times a week, will that make any difference?

Currently I only have hermit crab and tang in my tank.both of them don't eat that.

I personally had better results while dosing CV 2 x weekly @ 2 drops / 25 US gallons. Corals have build up a thicker slime coat with it compared dosing smaller quantity more often.

Because of the film a sea urchin might be worth a try.

There is a coral RTn or STN I need a bit help.

I got a large acrop, a few days ago I saw a bit white spots on the surface. But today i noted the large tissue losing. I have no idea what happened in my tank. All parameters r stable and nothing special happened. It grows very well and shows great color.

I post some pics here, plz give some suggestions.

They don't move.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Can not tell you what it is but it looks like something is eating the tissue. My first guess where flatworms but their eggs look different. Can you inspect the colony closer especially at the base to see if you can find any eggs of the flatworms ?

Here you can find some pictures:

No there is nothing like eggs or flatworm. I consider it is more like a bacterial infection. I have tried antibiotic dipping, will see what happen tmr.

From the pictures it looks like the pore structure is missing at the areas with the missing tissue, crabs can cause it for example.

i used dry rock. And I only have hermit crab. Do you think that could be bacterial infection like white band? I dip it in antibiotic and seems the rtn is not that bad today. At least not improving

They often come with frag rocks so you can never be sure. If it is bacterial based you might frag that coral cutting it generous in the healthy tissue.
