    I doubt it is the damsel, more than likely something water chemistry wise has changed. I would break off a couple of frags before the whole thing dies. I had the same thing happen and it will continue to spread. I broke off a few pieces and those survived. Have you changed anything tanks wise? I would test the water.

    That is weird bird-nest is pretty hardy. If the other SPS looks good then maybe the damsel did have something to do with it.

    That's definitely water chemistry. IMO, the green birdsnest above is pretty, but the structure gets crazy after they get bigger. I have some in my tank and I'm more into structural corals that grow more uniform. I'm fixing to get rid of mine all together.

    that sucks... hate when a random SPS takes a nose a dive for no apparent reason... any alk spikes or bounces? although I would think other SPS would exhibit symptoms..
