Significant changes in water chemistry can also cuase this to happen as well when moving a coral from one system to another. At anyrate this is not a good sign and eventual loss of the coral can be expected, although some will bounce back.

Too much light is the primary reason. They can be slowly acclimated but mine prefers a more shaded environment toward the bottom of my tank.
i just moved it under a ledge, i didnt think i would have to worry about having too much light with T5's, whats weird is the other one is doign just fine and they came from the same system and were gettign the same light and were even aclimated the same way
