Brown stuff on my Polyp?

I got this Polyp on Monday it has yet to open. And two days ago this started showing up bit by bit.

It is a green star polyp.

I'm fairly new to this hobby, so I'm learning as I go.

Thanks for your help!

I would take a turkey baster and try to blow a bunch of that stuff off and then put it in a moderate flow area to keep it off. I cant really tell what it is though?

It almost looks like cyano and that frag looks dead. Try what Mike said and see if it will survive.

I agree that it looks to be a dead frag with algae growing over it from the bacterial die-off. Perhaps there is a very small portion still alive
