Josee - you have a scolymia.

As a rough visual guide, the scolys have sort of concentric rings, where as cynarinas have segments pointing inwards.

Cut the light to about 6 hours a day
Use 100% RO - that's your problem right there.

How much flow do you have?
Regular water changes?
Any phosphate remover?

have you tested all your levels?...
