Just brought it home from my lfs last week...maybe a change in lighting from that?
Is it a temporary or a forever kind of thing?

It's a temporary thing if you fix the problem what kind of lighting do you have compared to the Lfs?

Okay thanks.
I know their placement was on the bottom but maybe I'll move him up temporarily until he gets better...

Appreciate the help.

If that is a Carnation coral, they are a notoriously hard coral to keep, so it's possible lighting isn't even the main issue, but I believe they are a low light species, and giving it more light will only make it worse. If your LFS had it under brighter lights, they started the bleaching, even though it still may have looked decent, it could have already been in a state of decline. IMO I would lower it and check all parameters, you'll need great water quality If that is of course a Carnation.

In doing research I thought it might have been the Carnation but the lfs was selling it as a Christmas tree?
