    Bleached Brain [Trachyphyllia]. Please Help!

    I bought this brain coral and then found out that it was bleached. I have read that sometimes it can get the color back. I have also read that there are chemicals that can be added to help restore zoanthellae witch gives it its color. It is eating and the skin looks fine other then loosing its color. Is there anything I can do to help it?

    put it on the sand in your tank and dose a small amount of brightwell coral color everyday. It should start to color back up.

    It started showing some color but then the skin just started melting away and a few days later I had to take it out cause it was just polluting the water.

    The koral color made my zoas pop out like crazy. I stopped using it now that my system is so large, but it made a big difference.
