    I don't see anything in the picture but if you do have brown jelly disease on that frogspawn the entire colony or all affected heads will be likely lost by tomorrow if not this evening

    Do you see the dark brown/black spots on the tips?

    Yes I see that. It doesn't resemble brown jelly disease. Brown Jelly looks like mucous on the coral. It is the dissolved tissue and bacteria of some sort

    Your froggy looks fine. Brown jelly like others have said, you know it. The whole head is receded and its a blob.

    Unfortunately due to picture quality I am not able to give you any kind of diagnosis.

    I had a few BJD losses a while back. Usually, you see the infected coral all closed up one day, dead and brown the next. It could be coincidental, but I began using MB7 (microbactor7) as someone claimed it got rid of cyano. It worked for my cyano, and I never had BJD since about the same time.

    Dip it in coral Coral rx asap, even if your not sure. Better to be safe, especially if you have other euphyllia that can be affected. I've beat it, took a few dips but I was victorious.

    Try some chemiclean. If it's bacterial should fix it right up.
    I had a nasty brown/green bacterial bloom and chemiclean worked like magic.
    Read the reviews on MD .. hard to find a person that had negative effects. Worth a try.
    Afterwards work on keeping organics down and adjust any carbon dosing.

    Wow that's really interesting. The frogspawn is still doing fine. I'm just not sure what those brownish marks are.

    I'll definitely look into this. It's still doing fine so I really have no idea what it is.

    I've read good things about chemiclean. I will have to give it a shot.

    How did you get to that diagnosis?

    In the second picture, there is a brown spot near the middle. Looks just like a flatworm.
    Here is a picture of a frogspawn with flatworms.
