Torch coral deflated

Hi I'm new to this forum and need help with a coral I have. I have a 55 g that has been running for a little over a year. I have some coral in it and noticed yesterday one didn't seem to be doing do not. I have a torch that seems to be deflated. The color hasn't changed but the polyps are thin. It was doing great since I bought it a couple weeks ago. It was fully extended and polyps looked nice and plump but now they're deflated. Nothing has changed in the tank. My parameters are good. I also have other euphyllia in the tank that are doing great. I do have an algae problem but I don't think that would affect the coral but I don't know I may be wrong

Thanks

If you start to see it coming apart then it has the brown jelly disease. It will have a brown jelly like coating on it then you will see the fleshy part breaking apart and falling off. Try googling "brown Jelly disease".

I don't see anything wrong with that torch coral. I'd expect that addressing the parameter issues that are feeding the algae in the system will help it return to a more normal state.

Ok thanks...should I be worried for my other corals? I've read that Brown jelly disease can wipe out eupyllias. Thanks for the help.

I'll try that...my nitrates were a bit high but I've managed to bring them down to zero with large water changes every couple days. Thanks for the help
