My whole tank seems to be in trouble!

Hi, on Sunday I did a 20% w/c and since then my tank seems to be in trouble. The polyps on one of my corals refuses to come out! Today I came home from work and my large toadstool won't come out. Also I have two duncan corals and both heads have a brown film over them and also have not come out. Lately I have a lot of cyno on my sand bed. I upped my flow and cleaned the bed yesterday but today it has all come back. The only things that are ok is my finger coral and pulsing Xenia . The tank is four months old. All my readings seem fine. Please help as I'm panicking !!Click image for larger version

Are you using RODI water or treated tap water?

All is still the same, although mushroom is out but has gone a different shape and turned to one side . Is this normal?

Ok, I could do with your help on this one mrX . As you know my mushroom is all limp and not to good. Today I took it out of the tank and dip it in some fresh water. It looked as though there was brown jelly on it , so I gently rubbed it off and placed it back in the tank. On a closer look I noticed holes in my mushroom. Is it on its way out and should u throw it? Or will it recover?. Your opinion would be much appreciated . Many thanks.Click image for larger version

Do not throw it away. Do a water change.
