White spots on my poylps (UPDATE PIC)

The new poylps I got have gotten a couple of thick white places on it. What could this be?

Also will cyno that covers a few poylps kill them?

All levels are good. 0/0/0/8.2

I read somewhere that polyps develop whitespots when they get more lighting than they require or overexposure to light. Where did you place your polyps? I wish I can link you to that article. I was reading up on Yellow Polyps.

Revhtree I have seen this before. It is a kind of fungus that comes in on certian zoo's usually pink ones. I dont think this particular problem is caused by light acclimation, but rather something brought in with them. On the colony that I had that was affected like this I just kept blowing them off and put them in a higher flow area. I lost a part of the colony but it survived and multipled.

Just an update. I kept blowing the white stuff off, and eventually it went away, after killing 75% of the poylps. Today I am happy to report that the poylps have come back in full force, and are multiplying daily!

Here is a pic:
