Question Brown Jelly Removal

I have this filmy substance covering my gonioporas 1x at a time. I'm confident its brown jelly. Is there a way to more permanently remove it besides just blowing it off? Returns everytime. All other softies are fine, just my gonis. Dip? Fresh water bath?
I am a reefer in honor of our disappearing reefs and to celebrate biodiversity.

i use coral rx and lugol's or h2o2. don't blow it in the DT. carefully remove coral and use a eye dropper and gently disperse jelly in container. then dip for 30 secs. from my experience, it slows the brown jellying, but ultimately all my wall euphyllia succumbed to it within a month. my gonis shrink and slowly disappear. good luck.
