    Hey guys, attached are some images of my Devils Hand. About 4-5 months ago half of it started to turn white. The is now a little green color coming into the white. I am thinking it is dying and if that is the case would like to get it yanked out of my tank. I did have a BTA that started to wander until he attached onto my intake that could have stung it and did have a few Aipatasia that have been cleaned up in the tank. Haven't seen any fish nipping at it, thoughts, suggestions, let me know, thanks for the help on this!

    Its tough to say. Mine has done similar things and looked like that for a week. then it would shed a piece and then the next day look like nothing was wrong at all. now i have 5 small frags in my tank.

    they go through cycles when they shed and grow so you just have to wait and see.
