I have a frog spawn that was stung pretty bad by a torch but I think it is recovering, but I noticed this black,brown,red stuff forming on the edges of the coral and I don't know what it is. I think it could be just red slime algae because it came right off with a toothbrush but someone else said it was brown jelly disease. So now I'm confused and scared of what it is as of now none of my other LPS have showed it but I recently just quarantined the frogspawn. Any ideas of what it is? (The picture out of the water is after I brushed it off but it still looks a little brown in the water)

I don't think it is brown jelly, however, it could be. Keep an eye on it. If the tentacles turn brown, then take it out. Isolate the coral, so that way if it is, it doesn't spread. I hope this helped... :)

Brown jelly would be covering up the good looking tissue.
