i can't help much with the current situation but the light you have is not sufficient for sps. maybe you will get away with the digi, but long term speaking, it will not support the sps like acro

If it continues, I would cut that off of the plug, leaving some good tissue. You could re-glue it to your rock. in many cases that will stop the recession.

or kill it in the process. I had a similar situation where I have to snip off a portion of the frag. The frag bleached its gut out and died. it's a chance you will have to take tho

No. In no cases will cutting the dead part off of a coral kill it. Something else killed your coral.

when I cut my frag I had to chip away part of the coral that's alive. I imagine that the OP is going to do the same because you can never be precise enough to just cut away the dead part and make the remaining coral intact

It is more likely a nutrient problem than a lighting issue
