acan turning to jelly...

I have no idea what is going on I was away for a few days,came back and 1 of my nicest acan colonies was like brown jelly when most lps die this is what happens as many of you know. First it was 1/3 then 1/2 I blew it off in the powerhead and put it back. Now more of it is dying. I have no idea what's going on with this piece..params are spot on and everything in the tank is PERFECT. I haven't done anything different to the tank,haven't added any corals in months.

This ever happen to anyone?

Happened to a torch of mine a while back. Out of nowhere it just started dying for no reason.

yea it happened to an awesome froggy I had also about 6 months ago when I was still in Bayside. Weird though..never knew what happened. Everything else was always good. I'm going to feed everything and do a water change tomorrow hopefully I can save some of it.

take it out off your tank and dip it, while dipping it take a baster and squirt off the dead tissue , put it back into your tank, add more flow

I also had a nice 3 color acan of about 15 heads do that. I put it down at the bottom and 4 heads remained. They were barely visiable but they slowly came back. Now I have four nice sized heads and 2 new babies. I had another one do that and nothing was left alive. I n both cases I had other acans and all were fine. So hope for the best.

Nope guys I haven't fragged anything in my tank recently I was planning on doing that today! Ugh, well I just checked them right now they looks fine I don't see any jelly so maybe I blew everything off last night and it's done dying for now. It's a really bad *** acan too even has 2 color patterns. Prob lost about 40 heads though. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEAKKKKKKKK!

If it was close to a chalice/mushroom/sps or competing acan for space they fight and that's the result of the losing acan too
