Has the middle head come out at all over the last few days? My frogspawn does that when something (yellow clown goby) swims around in it. The other two heads look very good...that middle one looks like something is disturbing it.

If it starts to deteriorate you`ll need to break off the infected head. Look up brown jelly disease. I had it happen to my torch coral. Not to much flow at it is there?
