    Tonight while doing my water change I accidentally got the siphon hose to close to my frogspawn and it got it. Did I kill my frogspawn ? Before and after pics. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm sure it will be fine. Give it a day and it should inflate again. If not, it will be in time as it regenerates its tissue.

    I think it actually tore some of the tentacles off. Pretty ticket at myself at the moment. Lol. That's my favorite coral.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I have done the same, no permanent damage was done.

    Since no immediate intervention will change the outcome moved to--------LPS.

    You definitely pissed it off but if the tissue hasn't torn and your water parameters are good it should make a come back.

    For the record and im not saying its your case, a too strong a current can damage a torches tissue as well on its own skeleton. Biggest risk factor after that is the famous brown jelly infection that can literally wipe out an entire colony from a single infected head. Should you notice this i suggest siphoning delicately said area. Make sure its an infection and not just waste from your coral. Bonne chance!
