If they don't get overgrown with algae, they can come back. Some of them. I have a small frag of acro bleach and it stayed white, then about 3-4 months later, it browned up and took off growing again.

Mag should be lower like 1450. But yeah bleaching don't mean it is dead. It happens alot when you put an sps under MH lights when it was used to t5s or something like that. Move the lights away from the tank more and you can move the acros up more. Or you can gradually move them up but it takes months.

Don't dose and use a salt that has a lower concentrate. Instant ocean is good and then if u need it then you can higher the levels by dousing

But at the same time a mag of 1500 doesn't allow hair algae to root on rock or anything. So actually it's a good thing.

By the way nitrate in your reef tank should be 0. Anything over 5 can reduce coral growth and make them not expand much.
