    Howdy,
    I bought a blastomussa wellsi on saturday and it is showing the same symptoms as my green brain and the green brain died.
    On saturday it looked fine but since sunday it was pulled back and today started showing its spiny scheleton 'teeth'.
    I put it at same height as it was in the shop so lights should be fine.

    tank is at 1.026 sg, 25deg temp, and all amonia nitrate etc are good.

    my hermits, keneya, hammer, zoas, all ding fine.

    I have no fish in my tank but feeding the tank elos svc.
    Pls help, i dont want to loose it.

    What are you using to check the salinity and temperature?

    @deadmeat, no, but it comes from well respected shop and should be OK from that side but maybe there's something in my tank.

    Just a warning on the digital thermometers, they tend to very badly calibrated. Do you have a mercury or alcohol thermometer to check it with.

    It could be a bacterial infection that targets those types of coral, i had 2 leathers that died of a species specific infection, none of my other corals were affected just the leathers
