    Sick Polyp

    3 days ago, the polyps look great, but then some of them didn't open up, then turned brown then white. It seems like it's dead... I have no clue. Anyone can help me with this?
    No fish nor corals are allowed to die in my tank !

    They don't look happy but not really sick either. Have you done a water change recently? Sometimes a good water change can really make a big difference to polyps like this.

    It looks a bit like a bacterial infection- that brown jelly can be bacteria- try to give it some solid flow to blow away the goo, this may help. But not soo much flow that the polyps are bent over or anything.
    I agree with Flame's recommendation, too

    I would dip your zoo's ASAP! I agree with reefmutt that it looks like some kind of bacteria or fungus. If you do not get rid of the infection it could spread to your other zoo's. here is a link to a good zoo dip method.I'm sure it will help your zoo's get better if it's not too late already.
