A few weeks ago I fragged a couple leathers- a finger leather and devil's hand. The frags I got off of each are doing well. The finger parent bounced back after a couple days of pouting and is doing great. The parent devil started to swell up again after fragging but then collapsed down again. About a week or so of a generally flacid state I noticed that it looked to be melting near where I cut it. I removed it from the tank and rinsed off the bit that was melting away, dipped it (reef dip) and replaced it to the tank. A few days after that I noticed more decomposition in areas that had not been cut so again pulled it, clenaed it and dipped in a Lugol's solution, replaced it in the tank. After a few more days it became obvious that I was going to have to try to frag off what i could so last night I pulled the coral and cut off 7 pieces, all about 2", and they felt nice and firm. They slimed up a storm and were soaked in a dip for about 15 minutes. I mounted some on plugs with a loose rubber band, others with thread through them and others I just let lay loose in the tray. Today, all of the frags are crashing bad and look to be a total loss. I am not sure what could have happened here. The original frags I did are still fine and the fingers are too. The parent finger looks terrific. The devil's hand was about 8" across and about 5" high fully inflated before fragging. I took just 4 lobes about 1.5"-2" long when I fragged- cut from two spots. Overall it looked like maybe 10% of the parent. Flow was good for both the parents and the frags. Are devils hands more prone to problems than other leathers?
