Bleaching base of acropora

So I was having a bit of a green hair algae outbreak so I threw so phos zorb into my tank and within days more acro is showing signs of stn. I'm pretty sure my phosphates dropping to quickly caused this. I guess my question is will this spread throughout the rest of my acro?

It most likely will continue. Keeping things stable will help preventing this...maybe some glue around the recession can also help stop this from continuing.

I pulled the phos zorb out and will go get some glue to put around the base.
