Xenia dying?

Yesterday, I noticed that my Xenia had an area on its stalk that appears to be dying off.. A section of the stalk and the polyps is turning white and the pieces of the Xenia are "flaking" off in the current. I have had this Xenia in my tank for at least 5 months with no problems and it has almost doubled in size. I haven't done anything to the tank with the exception of adding a Blue Linkia Star about two weeks ago.

sg 1.024
Ammonia 0.0
Nitrite 0.0
Nitrate <10.0
PO4 .1 ppm (or so)
4 x 65w pc's
72 gal

yep i would say that stock is about to go. i got some from the lfs that look worst then that but they made it. put them in med-high flow and give them tons of light. keep and eye on the water tests and make sure the water is in good order. you might be able to get them out of it.
