Favia losing Photosyn. Buddies

It was recommended that I seek help from some more seasoned AA members, so here it goes.

I have a green and red favia whose green color has migrated out of the "wells" and appears to only be held down by the corals natural slime. My build thread for this tank is listed below. This is a newer tank, but everything else, including another favia of the same color looks fine.

Pics.

You are providing it with mush different lighting than it was under in the wild. I don't see anything wrong with either picture.

Is the green tissue that is 'moving' still easily blown off?

Yes, the green tissue comes off easily and the red tissue remains below.

I can test that later today, but my ph stays about 8.4 to 8.5 max. No2, no3, and ammonia 0.

I added some chaeto to my Aquaclear 110 about a week ago to help suck up extra nutrients from the fish I will be adding. Also for BB and pods. Not sure if that relevant, but thought I should mention all changes to the tank.

Ok so KH ppm is 214 roughly.

PH: 8.3-8.4
No2, no3, ammonia: 0

Those readings are fine, right?

Tested the coral with my soft tooth brush again today. Green stuff came right off again. Here's an updated pic.
