Again?! For the second time in two weeks, one coral...

I bought a very pretty lobophyllia about two weeks ago. I put it in the frag tank where it would get a meal and not be bothered by my dwarf angels. Within a couple of days, it attacked my suncorals. It was obvious because a huge glob of clear jelly was covering about 8 large polyps. I moved the attacking coral further away, and pulled the suncoral out of the tank and repeatedly blew off the infection in a bucket of tank water to help salvage the coral. I ended up saving all but two polyps.
Tonight it was time to feed the suncorals and that same coral was busy attacking another suncoral colony, sending out its messenterial filaments en masse. I pulled those off my little Tubastrea, and fed the corals instead. It'll be nice to get the big tank running again.
