    I bought a clown today and it tried to enter my torch coral, the coral then got
    mad or something cause it shriveled up and then i saw one stringy white
    snotty stuff coming out of it.

    Is the coral just p##ed of at the clown or what else can it be?

    Pic please!

    The coral should be ok, how long have you had the coral?
    Is this the first time you see this happen?

    He is probably just pissed off!

    Got the coral sunday. It was happy and opening up fully until i got the clown. It touched the coral and then it shriveld up. Will post a pic tomorrow. At the moment its only one small piece that looks like white snot.
