Here is a picture of a recent LFS rescue. Couple of questions on it, though.
First, what kind of coral is it?
What can I do to help it?
And lastly, what can I expect to see as it recovers?

Lights are 260w, 10,000k x 2 PC's
Calcium kept at 430-450
Phytoplankton,iodine and other regularly added.

Thanks!

Save the coral...

What about....

Can the "dead" parts be removed? Can I break off the live sections? I think they said it got that way by being shaded out and picked at by an Angelfish.
Its just that the live parts look so good and the bad...well....bad:(

Thanks for help and input.
And thankyou for the scientific name, but does it go by an easier to remember name??? Its so we can quit referring to it as "the half dead coral"

Thanks again!
Nicole

Open Brain, hmmmm.....

I have one of another color so now I have an idea of how it should look. How can I break off a lobe? There are a few sections completely intact with a mouth in the center.

Thanks for your help on this!
