Elegance Coral

Can't seem to keep elegance coral alive..... This is my second one! It seems fine for a week or so, and now on side has shriveled away. There are 2 mouths, so I hope the other side can make it. All my other corals are fine. Does anyone else have difficulty with these?

Do you have adequate lighting? Are you acclimating it correctly? What are your ammonia levels? Nitrite? Nitrate?
