    Looks like it is getting to much flow from the left, or is getting stung.

    For now the only flow going is the Mag350 and 1 korila 250 both are at the top of the tank~my star palys are barely moving. Not getting stung.

    Was the water change done before or after the acclimation?

    My vote is also too much flow. Even if the flow originates from the other side of the tank it could be deflecting off the glass and causing a localized area of higher flow. I would start by burying the frag plug completely. Fungia normally sit on the substrate, so having this one elevated may cause it to catch too much flow.
