overnight one of my soft corals has some weird brown tips forming on the end.. Looks like algae but Im not sure. I can suck some of it off with a turkey baster until the coral retracts but getting most of it is difficult without the coral hiding. There is another piece of the same type of coral a few inches away and it has none of these growth on it..

A little background on my tank:
-46 gallon bow tank converted for saltwater with a sump
-octopus rh-50 protein skimmer
-light is Hydra HD 2600 set to 60% power (65 watts) for 7 hours a day no red or green spectrum
-The light sits 8 inches above a glass lid to reduce evaporation
-The water has testing clean for nitrates, ammonia, and PH levels
-The tank has been running and cycled for 2 months now on R/O water


Thanks in advance! :)

Being that your tank is only two months old I wouldn't worry too much about it. Your tank is still very young and this coral in particular is very hardy. My guess is that this brown stuff your seeing on the tips will most likely just work itself out over time.

It did end up working itself out. Havent seen any of it for about 2 weeks now.
