Torch Help!!!

I have been noticing that my coral seems to be getting dark and darker around two of its mouths. I am wondering if my coral is infected or is just under stress. Is there anything I can do? Please help.

Given the extension you are seeing, it doesn't seem like there is necessarily a problem. How is your water chemistry? Any issues with any other coral in the tank?

My water chemistry is decent but all of the other corals are doing fine. Nitrate are not zero though.

THe brown in the coral itself is a good thing. That's the way its supposed to be. That's a healthy torch in the picture.

I agree with Mike, it looks like a good healthy torch to me. I'd just keep an eye on it and see what happens.
