1/2 dead SPS. can it recover?


New member
yesterday, I was cleaning my tank and I found Acropora florida, and montipora digita frags that I completly forgot I had, hidden under the rockwork. both of them were dead on the bottom half that was laying againt the bottom but the top halfs were a little browned but still showed polyp extention. is there any chance of the frags surviving?

Chop them up and glue them down this time. If all is well, they will survive.

A lot of times you don't need to chop things up... they will just grow over the dead part.

I have a blue slimer that 1/2 bit the dust, and then it stopped dying, and now it is growing over the dead parts...
