I had the same issues a couple weeks ago with a orange monti cap. I took a turkey baster blasted the thing with it and 3 weeks later the monti cap is almost back to normal

Seems to be the monti bleaching season for a heck of a lot of people. Post some pics, it could be a number of different reasons.

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???
Im GAGA for Alto !!

I'd give you a hug but you might stab me

Off the top of my head:

-Monti RTN
-Monti eating nudis
-Monti eating blackbugs
-Too much light
-Too much phosphates
-Overall dirty water
-Alk problems?

Monti Nudis, trapped detitrius are two possibilities. How is your flow in that particular area? Alk?

Most likely detritus that settles on the plate, monti nudis usually hit the edges/base first.
