birds nest looking sad

I've had a birds nest coral for about 4 months. Looks very healthy. Very green. Lately the branches have started to look a little bare. Nothing has changed so far as water chemistry and lighting. alk is 9.2..cal is 420 no nitrates. mag is a little low at 1100. Could this be the problem?

Hard to see, but looks like what happens with all birds nest. Shading from new top branches kill off the lower ones.
