    Would you say the tissue loss is stable right now or still losing?

    I have had some success dipping damaged lps in a mixture of tank water (~20 ounces) with a cap full of melafix in the past. This I believe helps ward off infection. I would say if it looks stable not to mess with it. Put it in an area of good flow.

    Now that I found it flipped it over I really don't think its still losing tissue, but I just found it like 30 mins ago so time will tell I guess.

    Feed it once every week and it will recover. Low flow will also help it.

    Are you sure it wasn't your cat that knocked it over? I would wait a week or more to feed it.
