My recently purchased Seasons Greetings Montipora has some for of TN. Ive had SPS STN & RTN before but this seems different. There are multiple other caps and Montis surrounding this one with no issue and signs of growth with good color so im wondering if this is some sort of disease? All Parameters are great at the moment and there's been no changes to the tank since its been added. The frag has been in the tank for 10 days. All other Montipora frags purchased at the same time are doing great. Sorry for bad photos :-(

Parameters:
PH:8.3
Alk:8.4
CA:410
MG:1400

This looks to be some kind of infection, hard to tell what it is.

It's really hard to tell what's going on with the blue heavy pics. I'd probably start with an iodine dip and moving it away from other corals to eliminate a chemical warfare issue or something potentially spreading to nearby corals.

Yes what you said I don't specialize in sps corals. I'll keep it to the Professionals
