    It's not dead. I have a Frogspawn that was not doing well (looked very much like yours). After an RO/DI dip, it stayed closed for a few days. After that, it came back strong. It went from almost dead to its current condition (12 heads). Don't give up on it. They are pretty hardy in my opinion.

    I have a 4 headed hammer coral. Two heads died. I was going to break the off. I diddnt and now I have 6 baby headys growing outta the two dead heads.
    Also I dont recommend a freshwater dip on a stressed coral, unless it is parasite related. The frehwwater dip just stresses the coral even more IMO.

    A Freshwater dip is suggested in many cases to try and flush/kill certain tissue issues. I am confident that a FW dip saved my FrogSpawn which was going down hill almost right in front of my eyes. I dipped it for about 5 minutes and then placed it back into the tank. Before I dipped I adjust temp to match the tank temp to minimize stress. I lost 3 head out of 5 because I hesitated on the dip (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) :).

    I have had the same results with a FW dip. Worked like a charm!

    For freshwater dip it is also important to match the pH and temp.

    I am glad it worked out for you. I agree that you need to match the temperature and PH. My Frogspawn was in bad shape before I did the RO/DI dip. Today, it has grown multiple new heads. IMO, the freshwater dip did the job. It saved it. If a coral is on the brink of death, how much more can you stress it?

    Need some help with my frogspawn it is doing the same thing as Tru2nr's frogspawn but theres no tissue loss. It looks like Tru2nr's last pic before the fw dip. Every thing reads good and every thing in my tank is doing well except for the frogspawn. My question is how do I do a FW or RO/DI dip??

    How long has it been closed up? There are times when a few heads on my Frogspawn don't want to fully open up. Is there any slime on the tissue?

    Its not even closed up its just "hanging" nothings growing on it and there is no tissue like in Tru2nr's picture. Its been this way for a while it acts like its coming back and then it does this, but this time its just staying this way.
