The flesh on my trachy is starting to recede and show it skeleton. Any ideas what it could be?

salinity-1.024
ph-8.2-8.3
nitrite-0
nitrate-0
ammonia-0
dkh-10-11
calcium-480

I also have a mystery coral that I was wondering if anyone can figure out. It appears to be some kind of mushroom or small anemone, but they spread like crazy in my tank (I like them so it's not bad.....I don't think) The pics are hard to get a good idea, but they are very green and fluorescent.

here's my trachy

mystery coral is perhaps majano. how long have you had the trach? any recent lighting changes? other recent changes?

+1 on majano. Google image it. They can be a real pain so you might wanna confirm and get rid of them now. JM2C

I think you guys are right, I'm not sure because there are so many different looking ones when you google majano but there are some pics that do look just like mine. I have had them in my tank for a few years and like them so much that I actually introduced them into my other tanks lol. Do they release toxins into the water? If not, I will probably just try to keep the population under control, but not eradicate them completely. Better than the ugly aptasia I guess.

As far as the trachy goes, I just got it a couple of weeks ago from Chris (reefkoi). He obviously runs evos over them, and my tank is a 200g BF with 4x 120w Chinese led's, and a 48" evo slim (all blue) over it. I started it on the sand bed and it was doing ok, but sand kept on blowing onto it so I moved it higher in the tank. That's when I noticed the tissue loss (over 2-3 days) and just moved it back to the sand bed yesterday and have seen no improvement.
