Brown slime is a health danger to corals and should be avoided. Scleractin is a brown, granular substance that may be found near the base of coral polyps and resembles jelly. In coral reefs, this material forms at the bottom of each polyps.
A coral in pristine condition will have polyps that seem healthy and are their full adult size. If this is the case, then the coral is probably doing OK. This suggests that they are helping the zooxanthellae boost their photosynthetic rate and hence their ability to maintain their own viability. A concern may exist if the polyps don’t seem to be healthy.

The tank’s condition needs immediate attention
Once you’ve established that the coral you wish to utilize is healthy, you should check out the tank it’ll be living in. All of these physical factors must be considered for the coral’s long-term survival. Given their significance, please give the following your full attention:
Coral cannot survive without enough light. That is impossible until this first takes place. If illumination is not optimal, coral may die. The coral will seem white in bright light but will darken to a muted gray or perhaps brown in dim light. You may ask the experts at your local fish store or do some research online to find out what kind of lighting is best for your aquarium. You must now decide whether it is possible to simulate similar conditions in your aquarium.
Corals and the water currents on which they depend are very sensitive to even little changes, therefore it is important to install corals in your aquarium with care. For example, if a coral reef is its natural habitat, you shouldn’t introduce it to an area with strong currents because of the danger of drowning. Take mental notes on the coral’s exact placement in the shop tank so you may recreate it in your own aquarium at home.
While it’s true that many types of fish may live happily with corals, this doesn’t indicate that everything in the tank gets along. While you’re in the pet store, have a look at the fish species that are currently residing in the tank. Before making a purchase, you should ask the shop owner whether the fish and coral you’re interested in buying will get along. Many coral-eating fish species actually harm the corals they eat by crushing them with their tentacles while they eat. The coral in your tank may need to be replaced with a different kind, or certain fish may need to be removed, if they are constantly attacking one another.
