Octospawn head dying

I bought an Octospawn about two weeks ago that had 4 head on it.

One of the heads wasnt looking so good when i bought it but considering the price I didn't care if that one head died on me.

Now over the weekend a 2nd Head died out on me, woke up and its tenticles were oozing off the side of the head. Yesterday they didn't even come out of the head.

What could the cause be?
Everything else in my tank seams really happy besides the mushroom rock that got stung by my hammer coral. Few mushroom heads died.
The picture was taken when the head looked healthy!

Any brownish jelly-like material around the dieing tissue? If so, probably "brown jelly disease" which spreads pretty quick. Regardless of if it's brown jelly or not, I'd break the dead/dieing heads off and get them out of your tank.
