Exclamation My corals are doing something wierd and i don"t know what

OK, I have 2 kenya trees, which are doing fine. The I have a leather coral and a part of it broke off in the current today, do they reproduce by fragmentation, or anything like that? Also my mushroom corals released a slime for a few minutes and they were some white things in the middle of them. Please what is happening?!

what are your water parameters, lighting, lighting schedule, feeding, protien skimmer, flow, tank size, live stock and everything else you can include.

Cool

It was only two mushrooms and they stopped like 5 minutes after I wrote this and the aquarium water is done. I heard that sometimes they do this when they try to reproduce. And my leathers apparently reproduce by fragmentation.

Kenya's and Leathers reproduce easily,cut a chunk off, you have a new coral.They are both common in that they release chemical warfare toxins into the water column, i would strongly suggest you use activated carbon on a regular basis to clean up after them, mushrooms are of the anemone family and will slime when upset, probably from the toxins, I think the white thing is the mouth and shouldnt be any problem, smallish water change,carbon, and carry on!

I agree with bluehalo. Odds are it's nothing to worry about
