Carpet nem not looking so hot!!!

Hey all just got this last week and now it's not looking real good any ideas of what to do. Water parameters are all spot on just did a big water change last week and all other corals and fish look great.. I'm running T5's with 8 24 watt ATI coral life and super blues for lighting.

How is the flow? How much have you fed it?

Flow is really good Mr.X. It eats a half silverside once a week but my clown has been hosting it as well and feeds it a little here and there. Should I try moving it closer to the lights?

No. I don't think it needs more light. I wouldn't move it if it's attached to the tank bottom. If it's just laying there I would try a place of more or less flow, depending.
So, this just happened last night?

Just wait a day and see if it recovers. Some times they just expel waste like this, but it sounds like you are not feeding a lot so you shouldn't see this happening. If nothing is off on the tank water, temp, ph, or anything else, and it's been fine in that spot for a week, I would expect it's expelling waste.
