    I have two frags of these star polyps. The first one was opening normally for a few weeks then I bought the second one in the pic. Dipped them both in Revive for about 4 minutes and they never opened again. After a week, white slime started to spread over them. Do you think they are dead?

    I have to agree. Does not look good.
