If a acro starts to look like itís going south (RTN) how long should you let it stay in the tank hoping ďmaybeĒ it will come back, to avoid any effects to the water chemistry.. thanks

Iíd recommend fragging it to save some of it if it looks like itís ya not stopping. Donít wait too long.

Depending on the coral and the infection, could be an hour or a day. As stated above, the best way is fragging unaffected parts.

Thanks! What would the effects of leaving it be ? I have seen where others say it may come back but Iím nervous about leaving it and getting a spike in ammonia/ nitrate

letting it die in the tank wont effect the water quality

Please don't feed the bears because the bears will become dependent on free handouts and forget how to take care of themselves Ö...

Current Tank Info: 75 Gal. Mixed reef mostly sps
