Need Help With Acan

My frag has been doing great, but now it appears to have some sort of infection/parasite. Iím currently dipping it in Seachem Reef Dip, but was wondering if anyone knows what it is.

Thanks

What your seeing are Mesenterial Filaments. Basically the corals guts. Sometimes these are used as a defense mechanism, other times they could just be an indication that the coral is unhappy. Either way though as long as your parameters are within reason and the lighting is sufficient they should go away in time. No need for medication.
