    Definitely looks like a bacterial infection and it will likely spread. The only thing that has worked for me is cutting off the dieing heads being very careful not to get the brown jelly on other heads. A iodine dip is also helpful before returning it to your tank.

    Euphillya (torch, frogspawn, hammers, etc,) tentacles can easily be torn when moving them or during shipping. They often get bacteria infections when they are injured.
