    as the title says, can it be reversed or stop it once it starts. aside from fragging it, is there anything else that can be done.
    i just lost my 5 head purple head aussie duncan with BJD. i tried to save it by doing a dip (lugols) but eventually did not recover and melted away.
    now my 5" green octopus frogspawn is affected by the disease. i am afraid to dip it and stress it more and fragging it is not an option for i don't have the tools for it.
    anybody has an idea to stop it? parameters are all in check.
    attached is a picture.

    Hmm, no idea to be honest.

    My gut tells me that you need to change whatever caused the disease in the first place, before you even have a chance of curing it. I've had a couple corals melt away like that and now they are just basically live rock in my sump. It never spread to any other coral so I just assumed that the particular specimen just wasn't happy.

    I'm confident that someone else will come through will more info.
