Green Star Polyps Help!!

Ok I purchased a frag of GSP from Reefsgo.com a month ago. They opened up and everything and now they have this white film on one side of it. They are under 3 watt Led's & actinics. Are they dying?

Gsp does not have a white growth edge its usually a light purple. What your looking at more then likely is a sponge which I would not worry about as gsp will pretty much over grow anything. The stuff is like wildfire and I'm currently trying to decide how I'm gonna go about removing mine lol.

every coral I got from r2g had sponges in them
so I would have to guess sponge
it will smother them over time if not removed
now my corals almost doubled and look great since I removed sponges
