Brown jelly disease?

Hi all, I have a Duncan coral that hasn't opened in about three days. My water parameters are all in check and it's placed with mid flow and medium lighting, it's always thrived but its condition seems to be worsening. Today Iv noticed what appears to be dark spots on the branches and just wanted to know if this is brown jelly disease...if so how do I cute it?

Greetings, well for me it's hard to clearly decipher anything from the pic because it's dark. But, if it's brown jelly the easiest method is to frag the infected heads and give the coral a dip in iodine solution. Brown Jelly will spread to other corals, it goes down the skeleton so you'll have to cut quite a good bit of the skeleton.. For brown jelly there isn't a true cure..

When my torch coral had it I had to break off the infected heads to save the rest of the coral. When it stars you`ll see the fleshy part start to detatch from the heads.
