Help with my brain!

I got this brain about 3 weeks ago. It has gone from plump and happy to showing some skeleton. I don't dose anything. Should I? My parameters are 0,0,5. I have 0 phosphates and ph is 8.1. I use reef crystals salt and do about 15% pwc's every two weeks. I also have a gfo/carbon reactor. My lights are t5ho 8 bulb unit on a 75 reef. I use an ATO also to keep the salinity at a constant 1.025. Do I need to do something special to keep this alive? Will it come back from the way it is now? I would hate to lose this after waiting to get one for so long. Here are before and after pics:

Today



HELP PLEASE!

I spot feed it mysis when I feed the rest of the fish. Every other day. I have only fed it during the day though. Not at night.

It should be doing fine then. Is your water hardness or calcium off? That's the only other thing I could think of unless there are parasites or pests in the water.

I unfortunately dont have a calcium tester. I will be ordering one. But I have a chalice, acros, hammers, leathers, pocillopora.....etc that are all doing great. I just dont understand it.

Do you have a good enough power head? I don't know much about this type of coral but most need a good power head.

Video of the tank and flow.

Here is a video of the tank. I have 2 koralia 1400's, 1 koralia 1050, and 1 koralia 750 and a mag 9.5 return pump from the 40 gallon sump/refugium. As you can see, the rest of the tank is looking great.

It may be getting to much light. I don't keep these specific brains but I've noticed my favias favites and platygyras all like to have a little shade and I'm running 6 t5s on my 46
