Frogspawn polyp bailout

Recommended Posts

Juniormerve

2 days ago I purchased a small frogspawn from my LFS. Good shape, nothing wrong with it. When I got home and looked in the bag, I noticed a few polyps were floating around and the skeleton was showing. I acclimated, put it in my tank, and the rest of it seems to be doing alright, but there is this kinda brown stringy jelly hanging out by the part of the skeleton thats showing. My guess is I was a bit rough during the transport and damaged the whole left side, but only on the bottom did polyps bailout. Is that stringy stuff a polyp that is still hanging on, or something else? Is the damage likely going to spread over time, or does it still have a chance to grow? This is my first coral along with a GSP I purchased with it so any knowledge or advice is apprectiated greatly!15595922573478437666016257672024.thumb.jpg.aed34fb88f44a070eb11ed0bdec57fc7.jpg20190603_153857.thumb.jpg.e25b00e28d1a6b84f88a96d80e1a20a8.jpg20190603_154008.thumb.jpg.cb021db5f05cfc08eb14f0684ef07ded.jpg20190603_153913.thumb.jpg.543d9665d8d18ffd95b46b1fe3f59195.jpg

Did the bag or container you transported it in contain another coral? Kinda looks like it was stung (maybe by the gsp?). Anyways, it looks like it should make a full recovery. Please note that I am in no way, shape or form an experienced aquarist. This is just my noobish 0.02 (1 year experience). Good luck!

Both were in their own seperate bags. I do have a BTA, but it happened before going in the tank, and the anemone has lodged itself in a crevice last 3 days. The frogspawn seems to be opened and branched for the most part, so hopefully it isnt stressed and will continue to grow. Any idea if the polyps can regrow in that area? Or can it only "fill in" by getting bigger making that dead spot less noticable?

That's closed up tentacles. Possibly damaged.

The floating tentacles would be from damage/disease

 

Euphyllia is hit and miss with recovery. Some recover while others just diminish.

 

Putting it in low/moderate flow is best to help it heal.

Having decently high dissolved nutrient levels will be very helpful as well.   What are your nitrate and phosphate tests like right now?
