Default BROWN JELLY Favia!?!?

I have recently lost a bunch of zooanthids and duncans to brwon jelly disease. My favia is also showing syptoms (the're no longer opening up and slowly turning brown)....also they have bubbles coming off of them and something that looks like cyanobacteria. When I syphon it off, I can see that part of the coral underneath has been eaten away. Is there anything I can do? All corals except for the duncan were from the same store.

Their are some coral dips out there that may help. how old is your tank? what are your parms? If you think you have cyno, you need to fix that also. Any one else have suggestions?

Siphon off the jelly as it forms. Treat the coral's in an iodine bath and dose vitamin C into your tank. The details of BJD and treatment are here.

If you see any brown jelly ie. necrotic tissue, you can use airline tubing to siphon off the dead/necrotic tissue and giving the coral a bath with an Iodine solution like TM Pro Coral Cure or similar product is likely the best way to treat the problem as the iodine will act as an antiseptic and hopefully kill prevent the spread of the tissue necrosis
