I`m going to go another direction. I think it`s the dreaded Brown jelly disease. It`s a disease that will kill the individual heads. When you see one going bad you have to immediately break that head off and dont wait for it to deteriorate all the way. It happens to alot of LPS corals. Here is an article about it.

Corals - Bacterial

Also some pics of my torch coral when it had it. I had to bite the bullet and break off the infected heads. This will hopefully save the rest.

I have always found it better to remove dead portions on lps corals. It typically will spread other wise.

That depends on what type of corals you want to keep. A nice T5HO unit will do for mostly everything up to LPS. Then there is a long debate on mh/led/and lots of T5 for SPS.
