    We've added pH buffer once, added 4 Astrea snails about 2 weeks ago. I tried to get a better angle pic but can't with my camera. Thank you all so much for the advice/input. I'm not sure what to do at this point, but please, keep the suggestions coming.

    Leathers are pretty tough. They were some of the first corals I added when I got the tank going after the first one crashed.

    In the beginning, I was learning so mine have had good and bad days but have always survived it.

    We established that leathers are tough to kill. If u do see the spot getting bigger, cut the top of the coral (frag it) above the white spot and put it on another piece of rock and get rid of the damaged stem. That's all I can think of for now since I don't really know what's causing the spot.
