Is this normal with Trumpet coral?

I've had my green trumpet coral for a few weeks, and he has grown 2-3 new frags in that time. Yesterday I noticed the "stalk" part of it, is a bit grey. I don't remember it being that color?? I checked my calcium and it's at 460. My other parameters are all good, with readings now of slight nitrates. I've had this tank running with 0 nitrates for about 2 months. I think my protein skimmer does a great job :)

Any ideas? Should I be concerned? I would hate to lose this, as it is such a pretty, bright light green.


Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

No worries. If you still see the fleshy part of the Coral coming out, your safe. The stalk is the calcium exoskeleton. Not to worry.
