Did I just kill my monti?


Recommended Posts

Some algae was growing on the disk my monti is on.  I have read that sps really don't like algae.  I decided to take it out of the tank and scrape the algae off the disk, I didn't tough the monti) before I put it back in the tank, I sprayed it with some tank water from my water bottle.  I thought it was on mist, but it was on that hard squirt stream and it looks like I drew a white line through my monti.  😔 


Then I was thinking- I'm not even sure montis can come out of the water...


Did I kill it? It's not looking too good.  The flowers were out yesterday.  Is there something I can do to make it feel better if it's not dead?

The polyps are retracted, give it a few days and it should come back. It also looks a little bleached, you may want to consider moving it a little lower to a shader spot. 

Take my advice with a grain of salt. I have little luck with monti's. I dream of having those big colorful scrolling plates in my tank one day.
