White spot on montipora

I do have a question for you last night I decided to feed reef roids to my tank once a week I just mix it and let it go in front of the powerhead so it can overcast and the other time a week I feed them I make it with less water so it's pasty as I target feed the corals but I guess I added a little too much to my montipora that it got a white spot in the middle I didn't noticed it till today I fed them yesterday morning no tissue from the coral came off is this gonna be ok or did I ruined my coral? Could it be just stressed?Click image for larger version

I would not target feed it. They get all they need from the lighting and water column.Other corals might be ok but IMO not that coral. Put some in the water column and he should get all he needs.

If anything rests on a coral it can/will cause tissue loss. It wouldn't be parameter related, yet, but all those reef roids will eventually lead to it.

So my best bet is let it grow back on it's own?

Yep. Stable parameters and it could grow back on its own.
