It almost looks like tissue is missing. Was it slowly acclimated? They are temperamental when it comes to sudden changes.

I use reef code A. Not sure who makes it. I'm away from home. Reef code B is for alk. but be careful with the B as its easy to get your alk too high.

I am posting a pic of the lighting specs and the coral any help is appreciated. Not many polyps are out not sure if lighting was to much I moved him lower in tank now
I see two issues with your param
calcium is a little low 380-420 is ideal
Kh looks like is way to high ideal is 7-10

If kh is really that high it burning the tissue off the coral.

How long have you had the tank setup? SPS corals do best in well established, mature tanks with very high lighting. If I read the description of your lighting right, you only have a 4 bulb fixture.
