    It's next to another lobo. Could it have been stung by the other?

    Any chance a fish or invert tried to steal the food from it? I would suspect crabs or shrimp...

    That coral is not fine and is getting stung by something. The skeleton is showing so I would move it asap

    Lobo's sometimes receed for some reason so its not necessarily being stung.Are you feeding it?Is that a Lobo right next to it?Can you take a picture of it?

    That's recession and the crab is probably feeding on the dead tissue
