Somethings seriously wrong.

So i bought this brain coral two weeks ago along with a plate coral,
Its been looking good until the last few days it started looking like this.
Ive been trying to feed it frozen krill but everytime i put it close to the mouth it pushes it off.

Will test params tonight.

Testing water now.


Still looks the same

Is it possible my lights are to strong? Or are they too weak?

Okay so all the params i can test look good.

Nitrate 0ppm
Nitrite 0ppm
Ammonia .25ppm
Ph 8.4

.25 ammonia isnt enough to kill corals, is it?

That don't look normal I myself am not an expert but from what I hear you need too feed brain coral with meaty food but I'm not a salt person so wait for more input

Any ammonia can stress corals out.

Okay so i moved it last night when the lights were off and when i turned the lights back on a 3rd of the coral was back to normal and inflated, maybe the light is too strong or i didnt have it in enough flow?
I had it in low flow, and i dont think the light is too weak.
