That bottom head is definitely about done, but the rest doesn't look too bad. I would think it's the ammonia it doesn't like. I have no idea about the flow.

From the coloration I see I would guess that you may have insufficient lighting as well. The parameters definitely need to be brought back to a good range though (0,0,-20)

Agree that the organic levels are too high. They are pretty flexible as to lighting IMO, but high ammonia or phosphate levels will do a number on it.

From personal experience with my Frogspawn I've come to the conclusion that their fleshy bodies are not tolerant of extreme point-flows as created from some powerheads yet they will do well in medium or high diffuse flow.. Initially, they are a challenge to acclimate and I highly recommend spot feeding it, if you haven't considered doing that.

Good luck!
