    Any idea whats going on here? I have three acroporas and its starting on a stylophora.

    The tissue is receding and sloughing off.. I will check water tomorrow. This has been a gradual deal.

    if it is slow then it is STN (slow tissue necrosis) You need to dip them in lugols and frag the good pieces off. You want to make sure you frag them off above the white area and into only healthy tissue.

    it takes a lot for red bugs to kill something... most times they just make everything look all brown and crappy.

    Also, red bugs like acropora a lot more than montipora and stylo

    And Visa Versa Monti eating Nudis don't bother Stylos or Birds nests. And Nudis eat the flesh so it would not be sloughing off as they say it is. I would say it has to be something to do with water paramiters or something.
