Lps plate coral flesh disapearing

I have a plate coral whos flesh is da maged. I dont see anything in the tank that could be irritating it last night it was a small portion on the corner and this morning about 1/4 of the flesh is gone. It seems to be dieing off little by little. Its skeleton is exposed now now up to the mouth. What causes this...the rest is fully extended stil.

For what it's worth, every plate i've ever had has done great until one day it starts doing that. I've yet to find a reason for it. Other may have better knowledge but that's happened with every single fungia i've had.

You could try an iodine dip in case it's something treatable.

What kind of fish are in the tank? I had a problem yrs ago with some dwarf angels nipping on mine.

Nothing worked for mine. Mine died so I now have the skeleton in my room as decoration. I left it in my tank before it completely died but that just made my water cloudy and stinky and other corals weren't too happy either. Hopefully u have better luck.
