    Just a random question, if a flowerpot coral has lost some of its pollyps dew to brown jelly and only has half a skeleton left. Can the areas which had polyps regrow?

    The brown jelly can spread to other corals, so be careful. You need to dip it in Luguls and pos remove the dead bits with the brown jelly.

    I think the same happened to my blue gonipora long ago, what is that brown jelly stuff? Looked simular to cyano. Spread very quickly and killed my coral - nothing spread to other corals after I removed him.

    Well if you don't get rid of the brown jelly, you can forget about it even surviving. About the growing side?
