It doesn't look like it's splitting but it doesn't look very happy. Where are all your water parameters at?

Sorry, but could you give some specific numbers? What test kits do you use? We really need more specifics or else there's not a whole lot we can do to help.

What's your salinity? Refractometer or Hydrometer?
What's your water source?
How long have you had the coral?
How was it acclimated?
What lights do you use?
How long has the tank been set up?
What is your water change schedule?

I agree it's not looking too good. Not sure what to correct without some specifics mentioned above in regards to perfect water.

You have a 4 watt LED over that tank? That would be your problem. That's not nearly enough light.

Is it this one?
