    SPS dying off !!

    I had put two "hand" sized acro's in my show tank about 12-14 inches below the 175w MH lights and they were doing great. Two water changes ago I was rushing and did a 10gallon water change, which I poured the water in directly from the top of the tank. I'm thinking I probly poured the water into the SPS's because now they are dying off quickly all of a sudden. Within one day they are 1/4 gone. (Bare white)
    I know they are acceptable to water/temp changes, do you think this is what did it??

    Chances are you just triggered and RTN event that was building up for another reason. If they don't stop loosing tissue real soon, your only choilce will be to frag them.

    It doesn't normally stop unless you get physical. Sorry. I have been there. :bawling:

    Shall I just start loping off the tips then where they are still alive, they won't die as well because of the problem?? I have frags growing in my frag tank that I have fragged before.

    Yup,

    See if it is stopping. If not, frag away. I lost a big expensive table acro the same way.

    You might save some if your frag it. First verify it is still progressing
