14 Gallon Biocube New Tank Coral

So I have a 14 Gallon Biocube that I basically reconstructed. I took the back where all the filtration was and when I was done the tank was empty. Then I went to finding a new form of filtration. I have a submerigible/HOB filter that I Moses to fit snug in my tank, I have a 50w heater , a small surface slimmer and a circulation pump fit for the tank , I have 20 lbs of live sand in the tank and 15 lbs of live rock , I cycled my tank with biospira which worked wonders literally wonders . And then proceeded to slowly adding coral. My tank parameters are all stable Ammonia:0ppm Nitrite:0ppm Nitrate:0ppm Phosphate:0ppm KH:10 Calcium:440 most of my corals are doing just fine but I have a concern with my Torch in Particular I have 3 head that make up 2 frags 1 of the heads you can almost not see it the other is starting to come out more and then the other frag is doing good. I'll just post some pics and hopefully I'll get some feedback

The zoas and mushrooms are the only coral that look to be doing ok. How are you testing your water? 0ppm of nitrate and phosphate is impossible if you have any living creatures in the tank. Imo your dealing with an uncycled tank as that bacteria in a bottle is a scam

What's all in the tank? What light are you using? And how much flow? I'd get an accurate test (read as not api) for nitrate, phosphate , alk, cal, and mag. And do a couple large wcs using ro/di water

The torch is def stressed. It shouldn't be receded that much.
I'd agree with red that large water changes should help the issue.

Improper acclimation can cause such issues as well.
