Switch salt. You are on the lower end of most elements so your probably also lacking certain trace elements. Switch to a more reef based salt like reef crystals or red sea coral pro for example. That would be step one. Also it is natural for corals to sometimes close. Many close at different times depending on the corals.

Corals being open is them feeding, corals like torch and hammer rely alot on the symbiotic algae so they open during the day and tend to close at night. Other corals like candy cane and favia feed at night and tend to open after lights out. Typically with soft coral they rely on photosynthesis also so tend to open during the day and close at night. This isn't always the case but something to keep in mind.
