I’ve noticed these brown scab looking things growing on my toadstool and with a slight brush and blow it came right off of the leather and is discolored and toadstool looks the least happy, I’ve also noticed it’s polyps haven’t fully extended in a couple days... I don’t have a picture of the brown looking scabs that were on it, but I have a picture of what was under the scabs after blowing it away.... any ideas of what it is and treatment?

Update, still looks pretty bad, the scab has regrown and looks like it’s recessed into the leather, I did one iodine dip yesterday for 5 minutes

What temperature do you think it too high for your reef tank?
