    I've got a green slimer frag that's died at the base for some reason. Should I cut the dead part off and remount it?

    I uploaded on my phone and it shows for me. I just now logged in from my laptop and the picture came right up.

    Thanks, the picture isn't great. The bottom 1/2" is black.

    Yes, the rest of it seems very healthy. It's got great color. Much better than the picture shows. It's really weird.

    Perhaps you should not cut it and instead dip the coral? Maybe try to feed it?

    I broadcast reef chili and also add acro power regularly. I guess I could try Target feeding. I'll inspect more but I haven't seen any parasites. I could remove and do a revive dip I suppose.

    All the pics work for me. I've seen this before but don't know the right answer.

    Yeah, I really don't know what it is. I've got a lot of sticks in my tank and it is on only this one.
