View Full Version : Trachyphilia detaching from skeleton

Hi all!

Wondering if anyone has had a trachy detach from its skeleton? I've had this coral for about a year and it was doing just fine. About a month ago the flesh started to retract from the skeleton. Now the entire perimeter is completely detached and the only thing holding it onto the skeleton is the central mouth portion.

What would cause this? It's not in a high flow area. No changes in my water parameters. No corals near it that would sting it.

Anyone know why this could have happened and if there's anything that I can do to get it reattached or healed?

Thanks!

Feeding helps corals get food other than from your lights and gives the coral energy to heal.
