Brown Jelly on Torches - Threat to whole tank?

I just bought a small colony of torches from a member and quickly noticed after putting it in my tank that it all had brown jelly disease (my bad for not inspecting it better before I took it).


I removed the whole colony within 6 hours but is there a threat to the rest of my tank?


Everything else in my tank are SPS and Softies. If it is a threat how long should I wait before adding additional coral?


Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.

Do you have any other Frogspawns, Hammer, or Torches in the tank? If not then I wouldn't worry about it. If you do then just watch them and see if any start to jelly. Usually it attacks just what you have in the tank and it runs its course fairly fast. I would do a watch change and run some carbon too.

No, luckily it was the first SPS I added. I'll do the WC and add the carbon. Thanks for the advice.

It also may not have been brown jelly diseases, it's possibly that just started to die and looked like it was jellying over.

Very possible, it seems to have been a little late in the process so I would agree that it could have been something else as well.
