fragging war coral with missing meat


I have a little frag of a war coral that had some meat missing in the top corner but i notice one of the green eyes near the missing meat is turning white. The rest of the coral is growing very nicely.

How to deal with this? Should I cut the part that is white with the missing meat or just watch it.

Can you get a picture?
If it was stung by something, just that head might die. If it has some sort of disease, you might want to frag off the infected area. A picture would help.

It may be getting too much light. I have a war coral that began to lose color like that too until I stuck it in the shade. They dont like strong light. Not in my experience anyways....
