My first guess is that the Alkalinity is too high as others have suggested. You should make sure that it is about dKh 8 and that your magnesium level is 1200-1500. If a partial water change and ensuring correct water parameters do not solve the problem, your coral may be getting picked at by the Flame Angel. I have a Flame Angel in my BioCube 29 and he sometimes becomes fixated on munching away at the LPS (such as favia and acan colonies). Repositioning the pieces seemed to stop this behavior (along with ensuring that the angel has plenty of other grazing opportunities on rocks)
