Birdsnest question

I recently bought a beautiful birdsnest at my LFS. In less than two weeks white spots appeared and I was afraid that some necrosis had set in. The spots now look raised, and may actually be new nodes for more branches. Because there are so many, though, I am reticent to be so hopeful. Can anyone take a look at these pics to dissuade my fears?

Thanks!

Also, does anyone use amino supplements for their corals?

Hopefully someone will answer I am curious because I haven't been able to keep pink birdsnest myself. I am getting ready to give it another try soon.

Probably new growth. If your calcium is high birds nest can grow amazingly quick. Mine grows every day.

Looks like new growth to me. Notice all spots are on top towards light.

It is how it grows,looking good.Keep check on your calcium and alk levels.
If the whole stems were turning white then you have a problem.
