An open brain will shrivel up if it gets too much flow also.

What are your current parameters? What did you change recently? Lighting, flow, or temp?

One thing you want to do is leave it on the substrate. They dont do good on the rocks. Him trying to host the brain coral is stressing the coral. He`ll be OK as long as he does not get too rough. I still have not seen any water test results?

Your PH is pretty low. Do me a favor and check it again about an hour before the lights go out.
