Anything with this Bubble coral?

It looks like Algae, but it does not come off easily. I have not tried to remove it.

Looks like cyano at a spot where the coral has been damaged. Have you tried blowing it off with a turkey baster?

That's a beautiful piece. I hope that area doesn't progress any more into the coral.

Hopefully it`s not the brown jelly disease.

i tried to remove it yesterday and it might be Cyano, but i didn't remove it all because i don't have a good turkey baster.
How do i know if it's the brown jelly disease.

Cyano is more apt to be reddish, while brown jelly is, well... brown. Only reason I was thinking cyano was because it looked like there were bubbles trapped in it. That seems to be a telltale sign of cyano. When I've seen brown jelly (only once, thankfully), it didn't have any bubbles - just brown slimy goo.

It's hard to tell in the shots, but I would go with the guys above: either cyano or brown jelly. How much current is the bubble in? If it's got a good current going across it then it may not be cyano.

Still, probably the best looking bubble I've seen in a long time.
