Does this look familiar to any Cynarina keepers? Only fish in with her is 1 clown who minds her business & a lawnmower blenny who again doesn’t mess w/ anyone. There are a couple of snails and a hermit who I have never witnessed messing with coral in general. All parameters are stable and within normal ranges including temperature. Noticed this spot yesterday 10/15, should I dip her proactively? I have Coral RX and iodine on hand.
Dark spot ... front - center (image 1 blues, image 2 w/ orange filter). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Doesn't look like anything to me. Corals are living creatures and imperfections here and there are totally normal

Thank you so much for your reply, turned out to be an “wound” which occurred in some way shape or form, it’s a mystery to me. However here is an update as of yesterday ... Im hopeful that she will recover as she is still actively eating. This photo was taken as my lights were just turning on so she is not inflated (which she still does in addition to eat).

Have you ever used a spoon, hose and rubber band together to remove algae?
