Thoughts?

The base looks like it's dying but there is lots of growth and splitting up top.

I agree that it is STN. I would probably cut the two healthy branches and place them elsewhere on live rock.

I'm not sure if the leather has sweepers as I'm not a soft coral guy and the toxins it releases would affect the whole colony I would think.

Soft coral toxins are a red herring for SPS trouble in any reef that runs carbon, has a skimmer or does water changes. Look elsewhere for issues.

In any case, I agree to frag and remount the good branches.

Agree that it should be fragged. I've also had success by supergluing the STN edge to keep it from spreading.

I fragged and glued stn. Fingers crossed.

Good luck. I just superglued some STN on another frag and it stopped the STN. So, IME that works really well.
