Hi Nate,

My friend said that it was bleaching (and it hadn't started when we arrived on the 9th). Some were "dulling" in color in parts of the coral, and then a LOT were like the pic above. She said that they would recover (unless the entire coral was bleached I guess). Unfortunately I don't know my corals very well, soft or hard. Brain coral was affected, the type in the pic pic above. I do have a couple other pics that are "fish pics" with the coral in the background.

Elaine, Chris, want to teach me how to post a pic? LOL!
