    A couple of days after I put the corals in the tank, the Scolymia started to melt down. I'm writing this one down as inexperience on my part. I think it was dying when I purchased it. :eek: In fact I am almost positive now that it was dying when I bought it. :eek: The other Corals are doing fine and look healthy. I figure that I'll cure the Scolymia and once it's bare coral I'll put it back in as a decoration or home for some critter ;)
    The positive thoughts from this are to "look closer and to ask more questions" I'm glad that it was a wholesale price and not retail. But, then again if it was a retail purchase I would have asked how long it was in the tank and waited a week before i bought it.
    Food for thought. Grow it slow aye Matt?

    :( Sorry to hear about the coral. Has it died completely?

    TOTALLY :( It stunk so bad my wife was threatening to divorce me. So its sitting outside in a bucket of saltwater.
    I look at the prices some of you guys and gals have to pay for shipping to purchase good corals and I feel lucky to live in the state of Florida. That is until the next Hurricane shows up ;D
    Thx for asking

    Nothing worse than the smell of rotting coral...blech...I can't say I blame your wife for using that threat :)

    Luckily, I don't have to pay for shipping livestock. I've got gobs of good fish stores here that carry a heck of a lot of marine/reef stuff....wait, is that a good thing or bad thing? :)
