    Does this look like brown jelly

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

    Hello, would appreciate some feedback here. I woke up to one of my torches having BJD this morning. I panicked a bit and in pulling it out of the tank the jelly went everywhere... 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 on New Torch

    My girlfriend bought a torch from our LFS for me about a week ago. When I got home from work today I noticed all of this brown jelly building up on the skeleton of the torch. I called the LFS and notified them of the issue. They recommended that I use either Iodine dip or H2O2 dip. I used the...

    Help! Duncan Coral Brown Jelly Disease?

    I have a small two headed Duncan coral in my NUVO Fusion 40 that I fear has Brown Jelly Disease (see photo). For the last two weeks, I’ve noticed it just wasn’t opening fully and I wasn’t sure why. Yesterday I found two or three hermits “cleaning” the skeleton. Today, I found both heads nearly...

    Is this BJD?

    I just plucked two polyps off my dragonseye colony because they were turning a bruised color. Pics attached. Now I had some white zombies (which were eaten by a crab who had since been banished back to the LFS) who grew this same color but opened and ate and were fine for months. Is this just...

    Brown jelly disease on Goniopora?

    Wondering if this is BJD on my Goni, and if I need to do surgery . Or, Goni was previously on the sand, and clownfish liked to bury it—just damage from that?

    Brown Jelly

    So I found my torch with what I believe to be brown jelly. I have no idea how it even got in my tank as I haven't added anything in over a month and done two water changes since, but now I'm at a loss on what to do. I have another tank I've been cycling that is probably on week 4 now and I just...

    Brown jelly disease?

    Today I've noticed that my blue torch isn't opening up as much like usual. I took a closer look and realized what looks to be parts of tissue injury or damage. At a specific region, a few tentacles seem damaged or heavily retracted/gone. I wasn't able to spot anything brown or jelly-like, so I...

    hydrogen peroxide dip for jelly, or closed up coral

    after reacting too late for one of my hammers (pink) ( now 1 week past, with no visible polyps ), my 2nd wall hammer (green) contracted the BJS and I decided to try a hydrogen peroxide dip, the green wall hammer had been freshly cut when bought, so it had some natural polyp retraction near the...

    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...

    Frogspawn with brown jelly!

    My frogspawn didn't respond well to a dip in ca/mg/alk (although my zoas are doing better, go figure) and now has brown jelly disease. It's spreading quickly, so I'm on my way to Lowes for some Bayer insecticide. Does Bayer actually cure/treat brown jelly specifically? Or is iodine the only...
