    Hey guys... I need some help here. I buy a euphyllia coral. And after a week, it gets brown jelly disease and it's a gonner. What can I do to prevent this from happening? My water parameters are perfect. Would really appreciate your help!

    2 things,
    "My water parameters are perfect" - what are the values, perfect can be interpereted differently but different people.

    what is your flow like? and are the corals showing nicley at the LFS when before purchase them?

    Errr it seems pretty random to me. Euphyllia are strange when it comes to brown jelly. Sometimes you can be super careful, get a healthy looking specimen, dip it and put it into perfect water conditions and it'll still get brown jelly and die...even if you have a tank where Euphyllia are already thriving.

    IME the branching species are a better bet than the "wall" ones. You might lose a head or two but you won't generally lose the whole colony. The green frogspawn I have now (which has grown about 30 heads and been fragged about 5 times) started off as a single surviving head on a colony of 9.
