Is this dangerous?

Hey, wonderfull reef keepers!
I have this wonderful LPS corral that suddenly has started to get blackish tentacles. Do you know what it is? And is it dangerous?

You'll need to use a different picture hosting service for anyone to see what it is.

looks like an elegance coral

tentacles are very sticky, and are known to kill snails (never witnessed it myself)

not sure about the black tentacles, but probably not a good sign.

they are prone to having elegance coral syndome and it's a hit or miss whether you get lucky with a healthy specimen imo
