    One of my torches got BJD. Should I preemptively dip the other LPS incase it spreads?

A piece of it even got stuck on one of my acans :( I currently have a bunch of other torches, frogspawn, and acans...

    Brown Jelly Disease

    So, I bought a branching hammer frag about two weeks ago. Looked great in the store (and so did everything else), and I got a great deal. Yesterday when I got home, I noticed some brown junk on the coral. I didn't worry about it (I was exhausted), but this morning it looked worse. I learned...
