Try increasing your nitrates up to 0-5ppm and phosphates up to 0.03. All softies and Lps need some kind of nutrients within acceptable range...

Feed more. Or target feed the LPS.

possibly light to strong ? or to much flow?

I have had trouble keeping acans with SPS due to high lighting and high waterflow. It's very challenging to keep everything happy at the same time.
