    I agree with Neil, one side is dead. What is your water parameters? How much flow you got over the coral? They don't like strong, direct flow.

    Just remember that for us it might be spot on, but is it in line with the coral's requirements?
    Is there not a fish that is hammering the coral?

    Can you post the actuall parameters?
