Duncan dying

Help! I have been left in charge of our tank while my husband is away and it looks like our Duncan coral is dying? 3/4 of the branches are covered in a slime and have not opens for 2 days. The problem seems to be getting worse? The skimmer is working fine as are the lights. Is there anything I can do?
I have posted a pic to best show what is happening

Have you done anything to the tank in the last two days. My Duncan. does this sometimes to, sometimes when I start a new bucket of kalk water it doesn't like it and will close for a few days. It also spews brown stringy goo every once in awhile. If your Duncan is anything like mine, it is pretty hard. Mine has been through quite a bit over the years, it has closed up for days and then came back stronger than ever. Iys gotten to the point that I can tell something has changed (parameter, nutrient wise) by how my Duncan looks. Keep an eye on it, and update any changes that may have occurred over the last couple a days, ie water changes, dosing, feeding corals, power outage, etc..

Done nothing different in the last 2 days, but have blown some of the slime away thus morning with a turkey blaster, it has definitely killed off one of the branches. I will keep an eye on it from now on. Thanks for the advice.
