Is my torch dying?

See attached. Is this brown slime disease? You will see one good torch head. The other is closed up and has this brown slime covering it.
What should i do?

frag off the dead heads and get them out of the tank without shaking that stuff all over the place. yes, it's brown jelly disease. i would put the remaining head in an area of decent flow.

yes, they are pretty easy to break apart. don't be surprised if you lose the last head. most of the colonies i brought in that had it were total losses.

That was good advice by MR X. I had one that needed to broken off also and that was the charm. Hope all goes well.
