OK, a few answers first.
I have not checked the iodine levels so I do not know if they are elevated, but having said tht I thought good levels of iodine were healthy for corals?.
when I bought it from my LFS it was under VHO halides about 12 inches from them and seemd OK, it was not pulsing then.
My calcium is a bit low (350) so I have started dosing with Kent Marine tech A and B supplements to try and get it back to about 400. My LFS has said this is a good reason why it does not pulse as they do stop pulsing if the calcium levels drop.

hmmm, I had not heard of calcium affecting their pulsing, just lack of iodine. The reason I said check, was not for elevated levels, but depleted levels.

Unfortunately I do not have an Iodine test kit so I cannot tell what the levels are.
I will go and get one, but what sort of expected levels should I be looking for?

Just noticed this morning as well that one of the stems of the coral (of which there are three) has started to go brown and this brown stem is not extending. The other two stems seem fine (although not pulsing). Any ideas?
Water tests show everything to be fine as expected, with no other signs of stress on any of the other corals or fish.

I would try moving it down a little lower in the tank, make sure there is good flow around it and check your iodine readings. As far as what is normal on that, I would base it on whatever test kit you find, use their chart.
