    So last week I reported in that the two acros I have were going down fast. Thanks to Mike suggesting a fast water change. It seemed to have stemmed the fast decline and it has seem to have stopped for the time being.

    So the question-so I just frag the healthy tissue that I can? Or does this cause more trauma and just leave them alone??

    Not the best pics but you get the idea.

    It can go either way. I have fragged the healthy parts during an STN/RTN event and its prolly been a toss up whether it survives or not.

    I have also recently cut up an acro I got from the frag swap that was STN'ing and glued the stn part down to a plug and all three pieces have survived and are growing with good polyp extension.

    I always cut the dead tissue away. This is especially true if it's RTNing.

    Done! Should have probably acted on it sooner to save more tissue but live and learn!

    Agree that it can go either way.
