Chalice bleaching or growing?

Can't tell if my chalice is ok or not. Sometimes it gets white patches before new "eyes" appear. Couple days ago it got a large portion of white and I haven't done anything to the chemistry of the tank. Any opinions if this is new growth related or the start of its recession? Pic from Wednesday and today.

It looks like rtn to me, but i've never owned a chalice. If it was me, I'd apply some glue to that spot and hope for the best.

Doesn't look good. Corals should be here within the hour and at that time I will try dipping. Thanks for asking

Either frag or glue it. Might want to try a little glue first.

When I do it to sps, I glue the receding area to stop the Rtn.
