I purchased this coral about 2 weeks ago. Never saw anything until te last 3-4days. It started as a small white dot and spreads out. But its only on 1 polyp. What can this be? And what should i do? Remove the polyp with a razorblade?

Happy to hear soms ideas :-)

Yeah sorry forgot to mention. They are zoanthids. And how can i cure it?
Use a coral dip? For example CoralRX?

I found this and my 2 cents are fungus. Can anyone confirm this?

So do you believe this is zoa pox or fungus?

Pox. Sorry!
You could try to cut that particular polyp with the blade and see what happens.
Remove the colony from the tank to carefully cut.
Or treat ASAP.
Don't forget to use protection: gloves, goggles and close your mouth while cutting!!!
Clean very well the area afterwords to prevent any palytoxin trouble!!

I would dip it in one of the recommended dips.
