    I had a run in with some STN on a couple acans and my pectina. Most likely the cause was some tank imbalances in light acclimation, temp and pH... if it was offended by cussing that could have been a cause as well (o;

    Ultimately, I hacked off a pretty good chunk and a few tips on Saturday fair bit behind the receding line of the pectina, over three days it had start to peal back quicker each day. The acans were already single polyp frags and likely lost.

    Today I can't tell which tips I cut off and the edge of the cut looks great. Coral is also "happier" then it's been in a couple weeks.

    What do you believe was the direct cause of the STN? Make a wild guess...

    I'd directly attribute the final cause to be my temperature swings. However the light stress and such would have been the build up to it.

    Once it started there's often no breaking the cycle I'm told without intervention.
