Being new is fine... we were all new at some point. But if you can't tell us what the coral even is, then it's tough to give you suggestions on how to keep it alive!
(Pictures might help - hint, hint.)
Lots of good questions from folks here for you regarding your tank, but I'm going to suggest even a bigger step backwards - know your coral before you buy it. Go and get this book - "Aquarium Corals" by Eric Borneman. Lots of really good information in there, and a good start to understanding the requirements of the hundreds of different corals available to us. Some corals need high light, others low light. Some want low flow, others high flow. Some don't even use light at all and need to be fed meaty foods to survive. Your corals dieing might not have anything really to do with your water or tank, it just might be that you're not giving it what it needs.
