I have a possible dying xenia

Help please! I having a possibly dying xenia. I have a 30gal with three other corals and two fish that are doing great. My water parameters are all great as well as my salinity. The xenia was by its self in a corner. It was doing great for the past 5 days as some as I added the new lights and the extra powerhead it started to die the next day. My tank is 5 months old. The xenia is melting and turning purple and white, nothing has fallen of yet. should I get rid of it or give it a couple days!!

I'm not an expert but you should try to revive it in a separate tank with the same conditions it used to be thriving in.

Xenia can be one of those corals that you can either keep or not. It seems that either the new lighting or the new flow is stressing it out. Did you acclimate the new lighting at all? That would be the main culprit I'd be looking at. A sharp spike in lighting can be stressful, like walking out of a dark room into a sunny day.
