UPDATE: They are recovering! I see them trying to puff up and the blue candy cane is doing really good! I think I have a good shot of having these guys recover!

They definitely look like they’re improving, but still a very long ways to go, wishing you luck!
Im going to buy some fragging supplies in the future because there is a 100% dead (empty) head that I want to get rid of, and one head is growing down and I want to frag it so it can face up

There are some heads that are facing away from the light and the coral is sitting on some heads. I know this colony is recovering but I want to frag it so each head can be exposed to light. So when can I frag these corals so that the colony can all have light and so the heads that are holding up the colony can recover

Dont worry about fragging that. It’ll recover fine. I got a set that looked worse than yours. They were infested with some burrowing worms. I FW dipped them for 3 minutes. Lol. First FW dip. Killed them back to no tissue at all. I left the skeleton in my tank for coralline to grow over. Two months later low and behold they came back. They were two heads 6 months ago. Today they are 15 heads and prolly double that many mouths. Video is current. Photo is months ago.
