    here's a quick 1 for u... took this pic (badly) of an open brain. i'd had it for awhile when it started to die off, i was advised to move it up higher in my tank
    (lighting) to give it a chance at survival.... it never really recovered, but the 'flesh' never totally died/disappeared. as u can see (i hope) it has now been almost totally engulfed by gsp, but still that bit of flesh remains...

    it was late so the gsp had already closed up for the night..

    I hope you will keep trying to revive this specimen.

    To be honest, i've made no 'more' attempts at revival....
    it's been like that for at least 6months now.. to remove the brain would mean ripping the gsp appart, n then i would have to try n dislodge the gsp from the open brain skeleton, with this in mind i have decided to just adopt a sit back n see approach..

    So now it's a wee little brain? Interesting to see the gsp stop by the brain tissue.

    I do not enjoy seeing specimens lost in aquariums.

    IMO, GSP is a pest and becomes a nightmare to eradicate once it takes hold in a tank. Worse than zenia.
