Hey guys,

I would like some advise on this case.
I got a frag of montipora, out of suddened it was bleached at 1 part.
Im not sure what irritated it & i checked there isn't any monti eating nudibranch.

Also from the look of the frag, it seems the back of it the rim seems to be bleaching as well instead of growing.

Should i frag out those bleached part?

Thanks

Erm.. I could say the severe part of peeling of as such. I think it could probably when I'm arranging coral accidentally damage it somehow, not too sure.

Picture abit hard to take though.

Just looks like some minor damage to me. Should heal up and start growing in that area again in a couple days.

Monti's are pretty tough, I consider them the weeds of SPS.

In that case, i should just leave it.

did you move and chip in last 48 hrs?
does look like fresh chips ,what does rest of edge look like right now?

I didn't move it, but i just noticed it this few days.
The rest of the edge looks fine, only this part and certain parts of it looks whitish.. Doesn't seems like new growth.
But my camera sucks, can't take it clearly. You could see on the left side there is a small part of it seems whitish.
