Your calcium cannot physically be that high. Looks fine to me. I'd just retest calcium. Btw I think that birdsnest is poccilopora but it's hard to tell in the pic.

I'm using elos calcium test kit. Which I'm still trying to get use to. So it could be off.

I think it's poccilopora too. Either way it looks nice.
