Acro expelling zoo

Well, my green slimer started expelling its zoo today. Any advice on this? Brown and stringy starting from the tips working its way down. Anything I can do to save it at this point?

Background, It was added on Tuesday. Had just moved it up from the sandbed. Moved it back down to the sand bed. It is under 4 T5HO bulbs. Just did a large PWC yesterday as the elephant ear I put in on monday died and flaked off into the tank, though I think this is from me moving it up in the tank too soon. Salinity is only parameter that is "wrong", it is at 1.026 and will address this tomorrow though it isn't drastically out of whack.

1.026 is where you want your salinity.

4 T5's is really not enough light for an acro. They require a lot of light. It's expelling is zooxanthellae most likely to the lack of lighting in your tank.

Yeah, my 55 should have finished cycling so it could have been under the radions...
