Could be the plate or torch not playing nice, but my guess is your water quality. If I remember correctly your fighting a massive gha outbreak and don't use ro/di

I've gotten rid of it all, it turns out that outbreak wasn't as bad as it seemed and I do use ro/di water my ph got pretty low the other day that might have something to do with it but like you said it might be I think the other coral is not being nice to it

I am guessing your torch had something to do with it! They pack a powerful punch ! I have had this trouble as well!

Brain I think has fairly short tentacles! Torch will reach a long way

It's a plate coral...but it was suppose to be purple it's kind of green near the mouth which fades into the opal white tips...they might have given me the wrong kind. But if it is a plate are they also poisonous?
