    could it be growth? or is something nailing the SPS?

    is it not perhaps positioned down current from an agressive coral?

    Good sign that, called growth tips. This is where your new growth is going to come from, from the pic the coral looks healthy.

    Watch those tips if they dissappear and start looking like the rest of the coral I use it as an indication that one of my parameters are out normally alk or cal.

    Could be due to flow, light anything, as long as its growing.
