Hi All, I purchased this piece about two weeks ago and placed it at the top of my tank under 2, 120 watt LEDs, I even dimmed the whites to about 60 %, this is what it looks like right now, I moved it lower in my tank. Help

That looks a lot more like a birdsnest to me, and tough to tell from the pic but it looks like there are some spots of exposed skeleton.

That looks like Seriatopora (birdsnest) not acropora. It looks mostly dead as well. I'd frag off whatever is left. Then I'd put the frags on the bottom and reacclimate them to the lights. I'm willing to bet you burnt it putting it so close so fast
