The frag in question is very hard to the touch. Almost like touching rock. The polyps will pull in if I touch them.

Yeah I wouldn't try that. Are you using rodi water? Maybe your phosphates are high. Maybe if you lower phosphates the algae will die off.

You need to lower those trites!!!! Do pwc until it goes down. And from my understanding alkalinity affects ph somehow.
