iv got some brightwells lugols iodine if that's ok? never used iodine before! how long you dip for buddy ?Definitely doesn’t look happy. I would not say its dead until most/all of the green flesh is gone. I would do an iodine dip, place it in low flow and light, and attempt target feeding when lights are out.
That will work. I take tank water and stir in enough iodine to make it a light tea color. I let the coral soak for about 10mins, nothing crazy. People have different methods, but for me this works.iv got some brightwells lugols iodine if that's ok? never used iodine before! how long you dip for buddy ?
my alk is always at around 8.4 dkh and thank you for reply and helpThat coral is not dead,its closed up. give it a dip in your iodine.about 10 drops in a whip cream size container. Stop feeding.your alk should be around 9.5 -10... If it fluffs back up try feeding 1/4in piece of raw shrimp or scallops.,once a week
Thank you for top reply bud"Generally, yes. I wouldn't bother feeding it anything, really. Get some Reef Roids or Reef Chili and squeeze a mix of it at the coral. If it triggers a feeding response, squeeze a little more. Do this with pumps, including return, off. They are not large food eaters, they are passive plankton feeders and get a vast majority of their nutrients from the light so feeding is really unnecessary. Moderate to moderately strong lighting is preferred.
