Are my Corals bleeching?

I did a water change today and my corals are looking kinda weird. Do they look ok?

Frogspawn



Superman Acans. Bubble algae developing from the frag and has a weird stick thing sticking out the side that lets out what looks like a spider web



Green Mat Star Polyps

Possibly losing color. What lighting are you using? LED?

The spider web looking thing is a fan worm. Not harmful.. The bubble algae. Try and puck it off without breaking the bubbles!

Going to build my canopy today and raise the lights up and see if that helps.

Many if my corals have lost the vibrant color as they are adjusting to my radions. It might be from being tuned so high and I've been contemplating turning their whole light cycle down some.
