From looking at you stock list I dont see anything that would munch on them but sometimes certain fish will go against the grain. Usually tangs will not mess with corals but I do know someone that cant have a brain coral because her tangs will nip at them so there`s always the slight possibility. Also there could be some not reef friendly worms, crabs or other life in your tank. Are the tentacles like chewed off or just missing? Your actinincs need to be changed every 6 months IME. Here is what I would suggest. Getting up at night and making some surprise inspections. Maybe Afishy has something here maybe not. Sorry about the rambling but I`m just trying to come up with some ideas.

I have witnessed a yellow coris wrasse (Halicheres chrysarus) rip 'em off, and eat 'em!

Who are the tangs?

My understanding is that elegance corals are VERY tuff to keep anyway. May not be anything you're doing wrong at all. They go along for weeks or months, looking just fine, then they slowly go for bad. How long have you had it anyway?
