    Losing my digitat frag

    Post by nikecivic on Sat Dec 24, 2011 8:11 pm

    My 4" multi branch sunset digi frag accidentally was touching my yellow porites digi frag and now its starting to turn white. I broke off the end that was white but the coral is starting to all turning white.

    Is there anything I can do?

    I would wait it out, worse case scenario, I give you back the one you gave me.

    I was just checking to see if I could stop it from dying.

    The one I had RTN? and come back, I took it out of the condition that caused it(too much direct flow) and just let it take its time and grow back over that spot. It worked for me, but who knows, I had 2 others that didn't make it during that powerhead trial.

    Well, I found it completely white so I threw it away. I've never seen a coral that got stung by another coral make the whole coral white. Usually, just the portion of the coral will turn white.

    Do you want that frag back? You can just frag me a piece of it after it grows a bit.

    No problem. I have the original. It was a different color than what I gave you.

    Thx. Yeah it sucks because it was a large frag and it died so fast.
