torch/candy cane coral

Right under the fan worm the "skin" on the coral has split and kinda looks like a hole is this a bad thing? I have it pretty high in my tank with new ai sol lights set at 30% for all 3 colors. Use rodi water. Recent new additions about a week ago a small 6 line wrasse and a few days before that and small button coral. I do weekly water changes, params are fine all other coral doing great. Any input would be awesome thanks.

Did you just add the new lights? Did you acclimate them to the new lights??

Lights have been on for 3 weeks. That's what I'm working on and why they are only 30%

Honestly I think that's just the tissue of the coral from splitting.

It looks like it would just be splitting...but just as a heads up, if it is high in your tank you might want to place it lower at some point. I have a candy cane under my radions and the few heads that weren't in the shade of an overhang got cooked. Those SOLs are pretty powerful.
