You got a very loud moan from me when i read this. I probably woke up my wife LOL. Frogspawn is excruciatingly difficult to care for. You could have purchased a Hammer Colony, which looks nearly identical, and is extremely easy to keep.

Anyhow, tank looks nice. Good luck with the Frog.

Do not cut away the white.

For starters, zoanthids are toxic. You really shouldn't handle them with bare hands. Next, zoas are a colonized animal. Even if a few die off, the rest should survive. If there are two next to each other, and you fear there is no way that one will survive because the other is dying, then cut around the polyp. Do not through the head, as this will surely kill the polyp.

Those are some very colorful polyps you have there. They should spread in no time, with good husbandry.

looks like the start of some green hair algae which usually comes from high nitrates and/or phosphates. to fight this make use quality foods that you pre-rinse, RO/DI water, limit your feedings, and have good flow, properly stock your tank with fish/CUC and so forth.
