    I think it may be getting too much light.

    It's just the one in the pic and I've had it for about 7 months. I know they're slow growers but to me it looks like it's receding.

    Could be some chemical warfare going on if something has been moved. Favia's are slow growers, it may not be getting enough food or any food. Some need to be feed and guarded because they take in food so slow. With small frags its easy to place a cup over them after you give them food.
