    7B43DCE0-A15C-46D5-B0D1-5620FAB7F993.jpeg 2 days ago my frogspawn was the size of a softball and doing great then all of a sudden about 7 heads were gone, any thoughts why? 59B59E15-9C12-4645-BC80-A329B8BF2034.jpeg

    First thought is Alk swing.

    No new fish, and would alk cause a change that fast?

    I saw a Hollywood stunner chalice near it, the chalice could damage the frogspawn via sweeping tentacles at night.

    It looks like my hammer that started dying due to low alk. I believe euphylia are sensitive to Mg as well.

    Just tested and alk was between 120 - 180 closer to 180.
    Ph about 7.8 and ammonia 0.25

    Did you use aptasia x near it ? I used some above my torch and a little fell on it and the next day that’s what it looked like just a thought.....

    Question is why the ammonia?
    How old is the tank?

    Never used aptasia x
    As for ammonia my Hollywood stunner was stinging my war Corel and part of it is dying I was wondering if that had anything to do with it?
    It does look like brown jelly (I never heard of that before) should I pull the whole frogspawn out befor it spreads?

    I’ve never had it but they say it’s contagious if it lands on other lps. Research it before you decide

    had brown jelly before nearly killed all my frogspawn, only 2 heads survived. now its back to football size again. I did take out of the display tank and keep the jelly off, not sure it helped but not all the frogspawn died. hammer did not die off as much and recovered quickly

    Well I took out the frogspawn over the weekend it was all but completely gone, I tried to get it out without spreading anything and apparently was not successful now my war coral is covered
    Any thought on if I just suck the brown jelly off ?
    Will this spread to everything in the tank?
    Any ideas why this started?

    Attack of the mushrooms? Not sure about mushrooms versus lps but I use to have a rock with purple mushrooms that dominated every other coral, palys/zoas, slimer, monti cap, birdsnest... they all lost.
