    Congratulations Kacy!

    Is the good half still getting PE?

    No signs of BJD would make me believe you beat it. I feel good about it. :)

    Thanks!!

    So, the coral skeleton is a flat circle. Right in the middle is where it was damaged and the brown jelly started, that area is dead. One half of the still living outer ring is fully extended (yay!) the other half only about half way open.

    I'm worried there's some BJ in that other half that hasn't made itself visible yet....but I also think the coral just may need some time to recover and I don't want to stress it with another dip unless necessary.

    No more brown jelly! I think I cleared it up. I'm scared to say that....but I'll risk the jinx!

    That was a long, annoying battle, but worth it!
