could be a fungus or bacteria that is triggered from some event or depression in the coral's natural immune system (if it even has one :confused: ), kinda like how we succumb to colds and such.

change the chemi-pure but i'd also look into some carbon, more because it's cheaper than a difference of effectiveness between that and the chemi.
