    Hi Guys

    I managed to get a Acro from our LFS yesterday, after a customer bought and it started dying in his tank (LFS tested customers water and it was all wrong - turns out tank was running for 3 days - and customer thought he could pop corals in)

    Ok, so the flesh started peeling from the base etc...real bad....

    I took it home, fragged off the parts with flesh etc...gave them a quick dip in medi coral and now have them in my frag tank.

    Do you think they stand a chance of survival? Any special reccomendations or thinks I should do to ensure a better fighting chance for the little guys?

    Thanks

    Do you have a pic of the coral?
    Depending on species and how bad it is, it can recover. If you are fragging because of tissue dying, make sure you frag it well into the healthy tissue. Ensure good quality water and just monitor it closely.
