Sounds like B.J.D. to me, sorry to hear that.

I've had that on frogspawn. Increase flow to blow the crap off and keep it from spreading. Lost the heads that were already infected but it kept it from spreading.

Brown Jelly disease, luckily it is the branching variety, if it was a wall hammer to the chance of survival would be less in my opinion. Usually the onset is pretty fast, how was it packed for you to bring home, any chance the polyp could of rubbed against the bag to irritate it? Or irritated it trying to mount it in your tank? There are a bunch of great articles online pertaining to B.J.D. possible treatments and the like. Hopefully the other branches do well for you. Here is a quick read about B.J.D. might give you a better insight.
