    i didn't see anything pop out in my mind while looking at your list.
    you got any new animals lately ? sometimes nasty crabs travel on corals or rocks.

    if you have no luck.. you might have to surprise him in the middle of the night munching around.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    exept the firefish and the Convict Blennies.. nothin new!
    i do the night watch quite often i luv it!
    the only "unknown" was a small crab buzzin around from time to time.
    didnt see him in a while tho i guess he found a better hiding spot!
    ill try n catch him on pic to ID the dude.
    i guess i might know whats eating it.
    I had since start a dead purple mat (guessin green star poly also)
    it used to have 4/5 polyps but nothing now, just the puple's left.
    and i did see a worm getn out at night right from a hole in the middle of that rock....

    maybe the coral was dying.. some animals like snails and crabs sence that and clean up the mess.. so their might be no bad critters... just a dying coral.
