I have a goni that I thought was dying https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/is-this-goni-dead.914527/post-10306206

But it actually wasn't dead, however Coraline is growing on it and it hasn't opened recently, is it safe to scrape off?

Here is a picture from a few days ago before the corraline got out of hand, pictures in previous thread from which I thought it was dying

looks like growing over dead skeleton. Just leave it be and when the goni grows, it will grow over the coralline.

Oh ok cool thank you, I was worried the Coralline is going to grow over the spot where the polyp comes out of?
It grows fast, but no that fast lol.

Only way coralline would grow over it, is if the goni was already on it's way out.
 

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
