At PR, ALL of my employees knew how to handle LPS in general and also the specifics with Euphylliads because I beat it into their heads. However, I've been in LFS's across the nation and I've noted that most LFS employees don't know how to handle Euphyllia. They are a lot like us. We have skin that is absolutely crawling with all types of bacteria....even really bad bacteria. For the most part, they really don't affect us....until we get a teeny tiny cut. If you get a cut and don't wash and disinfect quickly, you could possibly get an infection. Euphyllia are the same way. When buying one in a LFS, have the worker GENTLY irritate the polyps so that they pull into the skeleton. Then, the coral and skeleton must remain upright while moving it to the bag. Euphyllia polyps have a lot of water in them. If the employee just picks it up willy-nilly into the air, the water that is now suspended EDIT: inside the polyps in the air is no longer supported by the surrouding water and that weight causes the "flesh" to separate from the skeleton. Like I said, they are just like us....now they have a cut and they have good bacteria and bad bacteria too. Then, in no time at all, you have Brown Jelly Disease. Maybe the LFS did it halfway right.....meaning they bagged it properly but failed to inform the customer on how to properly remove it from the bag or never said, "Don't go blasting these polyps with tons of flow....that can cause them to separate from the skeleton". There are MANY things that can cause BJD. However, I've found handling to be one of the worst contributors.
