That sucks! Hopefully it doesn't do any lasting damage.

We were suppose to go in November for two weeks and then the hurricane hit so we rescheduled for the end of May I guess I'll get to see it for myself.

Are you worried that this disease will be transmitted to home aquariums by the live rock?

no...this is a result of environmental conditions...been degrading since the 1970's. I have been diving there since 1971.....I remember the huge stands of corals they are no more. Many contributing factors, most of them man made. This is in the Atlantic ocean off the Keys.
