    I read on another board of this happening to someone else and theirs pulled through.They basicly just hept an eye on it and fed it as often as it would take food.And other words left it alone to heal.
    You have to make a choice.
    Do you want a reef tank or do you want a porsche?

    Jagger... the same thing happen to me... had a 6 hour power outage and during this time my RBTA decided to make the strainer of a jbj 2500 his new home... the power comes back on and err well... bta soup... looks just like yours... the good news is he survived and is eating... time will tell if he can make a full recovery.

    ug..jeez man, I had a carpet that did a similar thing. It had a damaged base ( basal disk right name for it?).

    Anyway, moved it to a nice location in the tank, then it started puking it's guts out. I kept it in the tank for as long as I could, but once it started turning itself inside out, with bits of flesh falling off I tossed it.
