Well the acro colony I bought yesterday has RTN. About half of the colony is gone overnight. Should I go ahead and start fragging the healthy parts to save it or leave it and see if it stops. When I got it home last night the bag was so cloudy I couldn't see inside. I didn't want any of that water getting into my tank so I floated the bag for a while and just took the coral out and placed it into the tank. I don't think that caused it since the bag was so milky it was RTN already. Here's what it looks like this morning,

I would frag now and get the healthy parts out of your main tank. I'd cut the healthy frag into a few pieces in case any is still in there as well. That

Definately frag it now. Multiple pieces would be your best bet to save some of it.

Fragging is the only way to save it. If you don't it will continue to become necrotic.
