Colt Coral Trouble

I moved this colt coral from a rock that also had a large mushroom attached to it. The current placement is medium and received good flow.

I began to worry when i say cynobacteria growing on it but i left it alone for the week. When it can time to clean the tank it had spread just a tad onto the rock. I wiped it with my glove on and the coral began to disintegrate.

What are your guys thoughts. Pics below

If its disolving, that means its dieing. Not good at all. What kind of lights we got on it? Water Parameters?
