Live rock.... turning white?!?

Is my live rock dying? This is in the 29g. Because of some vehicular troubles I havent been able to get to my LFS to get my water tested. (I usually go every 2 days for a reading.)
Ignore the Gramma. It likes attention.

Hair Algae, that goes hand in hand with that sponge growing. Phsophates in the water, at high levels.

The white you see is your dead or dying Coralline that used to be growing.

You definately don't want them, at all, not in a SW tank. They grow all kinds of bad things, and kill Coralline, because they fight for nutrients from the water.
