a few heads on coral got brown slime, now died

Not even sure what kind of coral this is, it used to have like 10 heads. All other corals in tank are fine. Any ideas what may have happened? Don't want the other heads to die!

If it is the middle one, then it is a Duncan. I lost my first one to a small (0.25 for two days) ammonia spike. The brown slime was decaying coral flesh.

"Brown Jelly Disease" is believed to be a bacterial infection that effects LPS corals. It's possible that it's what you have there.

Mr. X, what's up. Question? Do you know of a way to treat it,I had a torch die from it. And why does it occur?

No one knows what brings it on and how to arrest it. I would suggest fragging off any infected heads and removing them from the tank ASAP.
