Yes. Move it down to sand bed and in an area of low to moderate flow. And get those other params tested. If you don't have the test kits yet take a water sample to your lfs. And get numbers not just "your water is ok".

It may be bleaching and sloughing off algae. Needs less light and be sure alkalinity is right. They don't like any rapid changes.

It actually looks like it is splitting off the tiny little head on the base.

Frogspawn

When they add a head, the polyps are light colored, almost white as they haven't established a algae colony yet.

I have a frogspawn that as it grew it dropped little heads along the skeleton and right from the size of a pinhead they had color.

They can, I think, reproduce both by adding new heads as well as broadcast polyps to seed new locations.

Mine didn't broadcast heads, it just had little itty bitty ones along the skeleton that got isolated as the main polyp grow higher and took its tissue with it. Click image for larger version

ID:	227164 here is a pic now, 6 months ago they were the size of pinheads. I lost the coral in a crash and low and behold the baby buds survived didn't even know they were there till the big heads died. I imagine as the large polyps grew and detached from the tiny buds it would have to severe the tissue as it does when a big head splits. It appears this "may" be the case here. It looks like a small polyp formed on the skeleton in the ops pic and the tissue is stretching as it seperates.

So I moved it to the sandbed. It was wide open when I cut the lights off. It looks healthy except for the skeleton being white.
