    In one of my grow tanks I noticed one of my flowerpots was covered in this white slimy translucent mass. Tissue still looked normal underneath but later today a scoly that I know didnt have anything on the tissue but now it is entirely covered. Again tissue looks normal underneath but whatever this is has LPS wipe out written all over it... should I dip these and potentially everything else?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Please google Brown Jelly Disease.

    It kills quickly and spreads quickly.

    Of course an image would really help.

    Yeah that does not look good.

    My money is on either a bacterial infection or Brown Jelly or similar.

    You can try dipping the corals, I would try CoralRx or an Iodine drip.

    Dipped lugol's... goniporia is gone. Scoly has bad tissue damage and mouth is laying open.

    I guess we will see. I hope my other LPS in that tank dont start taking a nose dive....

    Thanks for suggestion C!
