My guess is nitrates way too high. Should be aiming for 0. Corals are less tolerant of higher levels of nitrite. Acceptable levels for corals should be .25 some will tolerate up to 5ppm. Fish only can put up with a bit more (up to 20ppm) best to aim for zeros tho... Can you do a water change to bring it down a bit? All other levels good?

Sorry now I see .75 (not 75 which is what i first thought) so not way to high but still could be the problem. Temp? Salinity? If its not been in there long could still be getting used to its new home...
