Hey guys! Saw this coral losing tissue and I think it’s STN since it is a slow loss of tissue is it contagious to other corals? Should I just throw the coral away or try to dip it? I’m not sure at this point. Thanks for the help!

Most likely this is not contagious, but that coral is dying. How long have you had it? I haven't found dipping to be helpful with this type of thing; it further injures the coral finishing it off.

Not only would I do the usual checking your water parameters but also I would move it to a new location in the tank. If it is in a bright location move it to a shadier location, if is in a high flow area move it to a low flow location, etc. Sometimes that is enough to save it assuming the water parameters are perfect.

I have had the coral for a year now and it is in the bottom of the tank in a bright spot so I’ll try and move it to a darker spot. thanks!
