Could it perhaps be in chemical war fare with another coral?

There are two problems here. 1) They are very difficult corals. Most places that sell them will sell them rated "For experts only". I have never heard of anyone having them for a sustained long period of time. 2) Your lighting is inadequate. You do not have enough lighting intensity (Par) for that coral IMO.

That's a test for water hardness. You need to test for calcium before treating. Actually need to test for everything before treating. I recommend actually getting the liquid tests as the strips are not that accurate. Maybe take a water sample into your LFS and ask them to test for everything so you know what exactly your water parameters are. Calcium levels need to be above 400.

In all reality, I would see if the store would take back the flower pot and let you pick out something more hardy. When those flower pots die, they can crash your whole tank. They are definitely not for beginners at all. Like I said before - even people that have had tanks running for years can only keep the flower pots alive for about a year and their water is PERFECT.
