    Its mouth seems to be reforming now after my wrasse damaged it, I'm secluding it in an egg crate cage and making sure it has consumed or i have washed all the food particles off it prior to placing it back in the tank. Hopefully once its mouth has fully healed it will begin replacing lost tissue

    I wanted to share my progress with a scoly that was badly damaged several months ago. I was following this thread while trying to nurse my scoly back and appreciated the tips on getting these types of corals healthy again. The first pic was from March 7, 2018 and the second is from today.

    I took it out of the display where a fish presumably had picked it apart and moved it into about 115 PAR in my frag tank in a low flow area. I fed it as much as I could. In the beginning it really didn’t have a mouth to feed so I fed it reef roids. As it began developing individual mouths, I switched to fauna Marin LPS pellets. I’m really happy it came back, it’s one of my favorites and a bright spot when I think about what we go through to keep these animals.
