    I have just cut the piece off from my wall frogspawn, but usually where is the brown jelly located? Under the tissue or on the skeleton?

    I pointed the brown stuff that was coming out from the cut, if u know what that is?

    If these are brown jelly , now it might already spread to my other corals already, check if my hammer is infected too?
    This photo was taken after I saw few were receding

    And this was after an hour receding, seems the tissue has come out, maybe was just the light or something? So is this hammer safe now?

    what are the parameters of your tank? Could be anything. Whats lighting setup? Could be too much light, or not enough. Could be Chem warfare by something else in the tank. Those types of corals are known to slime and fade for no apparent reason. I'd start with some Big water changes, and addition of some carbon. Perhaps move it up higher if its low in the tank. Just suggestions.

    That doesn't look like BJD but it's hard to know for sure without being there to see it first hand.

    Here are some "web pix" of BJD

    Thx for showing the pics, mine looks very different to the ones in the pic, I don't see any brown stuff overinflated the tissues , but only when I cut through it, i see this brown string under neath tissues, it could be the nerve system or something, I did whole lot of search but no article seems to talk about the inside of frogspawn or hammer.
    I have put this small frog inside of my 6gallon tank with not good LEDs( won't support the corals), do I think I can leave it in for maybe few days to observe? Don't want to put in my dp tank it might crash my tank...
    Thx

    That doesnt look like brown jelly to me. I lost 3 out of 5 heads on my torch to it. Luckily it didnt spread to any other corals.
