    I have brown jelly on my finger leather and yellow leather coral. My water test good, everything at 0. Calcium at 400 I'm going to raise it a little and Ph at 8.4
    I added vitamin C to boost their immune system and amoxicillin to help fight off the bacteria. Can I do anything else?

    Cut off the rotting tissue and give the coral an iodine dip.

    I was thinking of an iodine dip. Should I use fresh water?

    You'll want to use water from your tank to do the iodine dip.

    P.S. You should still try to cut off the rotting tissue regardless of where it is.

    It looks awfully white. Where do you say the brown jelly is/was?
