What is wrong with my acans?? Help! (Pictures)

 I bought this three-headed frag of acans 2 days ago. They seemed pretty happy until now. I even fed them some frozen mysis last night. but there was always this one corner that seemed to be releasing a little bit of slime into the water. That'ss what corals do when they've recently been disturbed and moved" I said to myself, and I assumed it would just wash away. Then today I got back from work and found that corner oozing lots of slime and can see some exposed skeleton! the other heads seem very happy; no recession as far as I can tell. And even the oozing head seems happy besides. But something is clearly wrong. Did I tear the polyp pacing it in the tank? Is it infected? can I blame this on water chemistry and lighting? I need a diagnosis and I feel like I need to act fast based on how suddenly this injury appeared.IMG_1466.thumb.JPG.3d8d7be0b135a1476e9eb0b35fc41603.JPG856651673_IMG_09992.thumb.JPG.77be943a9ebbcec707fabfe7a86d47ed.JPG951525278_IMG_04612.thumb.JPG.2befd97b64787948275fd3558046f5ef.JPGIMG_1424.thumb.JPG.7280eb6f9f788994b9d11e5166926f2e.JPG

Looks like the good portion is in a shadow?  I'd say acclimate it to light a bit more. Probably all the parameter changes along with more intense light is bothering  it.

Are you saying to move it more out of the light or into the light?

Out. When in doubt always give less light than you think with a new addition. 

Certain LEDs will have acclimation modes.

ok, but they're already at the bottom and in the shade. Even so, I'll try dimming the lights i suppose.

Anything in the tank that may be picking at the exposed part?

Tank inhabitants are 2 clowns, an algae blenny, a sand sifting star, a serpent star, and an assortment of hermit crabs and turbo snails. Nothing else so far and no nearby corals.
