Sudden shift in water parameters, contamination, or its body finally gave up battling other corals, water quality, etc.

Describe your tank....size, filtration, lighting, livestock, etc. and then also your current water parameters including ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, PH, alkalinity, and salinity/specific gravity. Also mention if you have done anything specific to the tank lately (abnormally large water change, reaching in the tank moving aquascape, etc.).

Same scenario as above I would assume. Healthy mushrooms in proper environments rarely disintegrate unless something goes amiss in the tank or there is heavy competetion from a nearby coral (either chemical or physical aggression).
