Sick birdsnest

Hi. I got a birdsnest coral in the mail yesterday and he it was doing fine. Today when I looked in the tank the bottom half was kind of white. My parameters are all fine. Does anyone know what's wrong and how to fix it.

It's bleaching. Not a good sign. What parameters are fine exactly, and what do you consider fine?
How about flow?

*edit* Actually, this may not be bleaching and is simply not showing polyp extension. Generally, the lower you look on the branch, the lighter it gets. This is a common thing due to the center of the colony getting less light. Lack of polyp extension doesn't necessarily mean anything is wrong, if this is in fact what we are seeing.
