help for a newbie

Thank to Larry for identifying my Briareum. Now if ya'all can help me figure out what is going on with it, I would really appreciate it!
1. Type & how long you have had it: Briareum - about 2 months
2. Current lighting & Bulb Age: AquaticLife T5 HO and Lunar Light Fixtures 24" Fixture - Two of these and one 46"
Marineland Reef LED Light Fixture

3. Nitrate:0
4. Calcium:480
5. Phosphate:.25
6. Alkalinity?
7. pH?
8. Salinity: .24
9. Temperature:
10. Current amount of flow: two powerheads
11. Explanation of problem: was doing great and spreading now looks to be dying off? I had a problem with my coralife super skimmer and have what is probably considered a heavy bio load. I believe it was probably dry skimming so I have increased it to start wet skimming. I also have had a problem with red slime and have been dosing with N03 P04x which is a biological nitrate and phosphate reducer that has shown to prevent the red slime. Haven't seen a tremendous impact but was told it could take about a month to start seeing results. We are almost at the month mark.
Thanks for any suggestions! I took this photo a couple of days ago...it looks worse today ) :http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/m...cken/grass.jpg
