    So after I got the coral it was fine then I got a stupid clownfish and everything went downhill from there. The coral got brown jelly disease and today there was nothing left.

    My question is what corals are there that can't get this disease.
    I'm so pssd off cause I couldn't save it I'm not getting any coral again that can get this stupid disease.

    Hammers, torches,frogspawns, bubble tips, I think elegans as well (not sure on that one), any LPS with a calcium carbonate skeleton and larger polyps.

    My frogspawn got brown slime disease. I soaked it in an iodine based coral disinfectant, sucked off all the slime with a syringe, re-soaked it and two weeks later it looks perfectly happy. I could have just been lucky but I wouldn't let this disease stop me getting some great corals :p
