    Can any one please help, some thing seems to be eating my Mushroom coral. The injury to the coral gets bigger daily. Any advice how to stop this would be gratefully appreciated.

    That looks like a chalice.
    Have you changed anything recently that could cause that? It also looks like it could have been caused by physical damage. How long have you had it?

    Hi there

    I haven't changed any thing in the tank at all apart from adding an anemone. The type the clown fish hang out in. That hasn't been any where near this coral so not sure. i

    It could be aleopathy , but what ever it is you need to dip the coral in coralrx or iodine, and if it happens again run carbon to remove the possible hormones/namatasyts from the anemone
