It would be interesting to hear any new thoughts on this. Ive been searching the web and the concensus of opinion is bad water quality. However those suffering it report good parameters. Another thought is its a sort of asexual reproduction?

Quite often when something goes wrong the victim gets told ,your water quality is bad ,rather like a parrot talks without knowing what its saying...it is quite obviously in most cases not  water quality.

I never experienced it till this last 3 months ,I have had a euphyllia head be fine in the am and by lunchtime it ...where the fck did that go....only to see it the next day loose...

And yes my water quality tests up fine...

Baffled....

same for me, torch coral with 5 heads, come back to 1. But that one is thriving.

I lost one head out of around 20 from a frogspawn not long ago.  The rest are all spot on.  I can only assume it maybe wasn't getting enough light or food, or maybe got damaged from a shrimp or crab climbing/digging on/at it.

The rest of the heads are fine on mine too. I am very reluctant to buy more LPS untill I can square with myself what the problem is.

I've only ever had polyps of whatever kind bud off and float off to try to start a new life elsewhere when there's been something wrong. Even if my tests all come back good, I've always known there's something wrong, but never been sure what.  :heyyy:

Very insightful post from me.  :grin:

I've had a few frogspawn heads bail out, all my water tests are good, zero phosphate and 5ppm nitrate.
I know it's water quality in my case, my system is well out of balance in some way as my birds nest is a goner, and my fungia seem to be stripping now as well
I've had dinos and now have cyno and both release toxins wich we can't measure, I'm running carbon but I don't think it's good enough.

Crikey he does bang on, I had seen that they spit babies out, I'm definitely not adding anything else until the water looks better
