Frogspawn base disintegrating

So the coral skeleton of my Frogspawn seems to be disintegrating.

I had something similar happen to a candy cane coral where the base of it disintegrated till it broke off and I had to re glue it.

Anyone know what causes this?

Its only happening on 1 CC and 1 Frogspawn. Other corals seem fine (2 different types of hammers, Torch, and another type of CC seem fine)

+1 first thing i would ask i what is you calc? good calc provides the skeleton structure for corals growth.

I haven't measured it yet. I will test later when I get a chance (my test may or may not be expired though lol). Was just seeing if there is a known cause for this sort of thing. I've had this coral for over a year and its been fine.

How often have you fed it calcium?

My sig line carries good parameters for this species. Get your mg up first, then alk, then cal, and hold it there.

I dose two part occasionally but have found that most of my parameters stay in check with good water changes.

That last time I checked my calcium was fine. I only noticed this deterioration recent and its only on 2 corals out of the 30ish in the tank. Everything else looks fantastic for the most part.
