Can Coraline DO THAT??

I have a really nice peice of live rock that is covered in coraline algea and a few small polyps. Over the past week I noticed the algea was starting to cover the polyp and before I knew it... no more polyp! Will coraline destroy anything it gets close to? Should I keep my corals and polyps away from rocks with coraline algea on them?

I agree. Too hard to tell what's going on from the pics. I was hoping they were before and after images Circling the problem area would be good, but from the look of the pic, I don't see any coraline growth on the face of that rock. I do see what look like they might be dead polyps?

Yea well, DORKY me sent the wrong pic! And twice at that!
Here's a pic of the rock before... now the mushroom is completly covered and unrecognizable. It's just a lump of purple resembling the rock. Sorry about the quality of the pic. It was the only close up I had of the rock.
Thanks!!

I have coralline covered Lr and it has never taken over a coral??? I would say the coral was on its way out and that is why it happened.
How long have you had the coral/LR.
