how long have they been under that lighting? did you move them up recently? ph swings can certainly effect corals.

that's probably the problem then. i always use the analogy that if you stare at the sun for an hour, or 8 hours, your still blind.
i would put something in between the lighting and the coral for a while. something to cut down the light a little. some mesh or window screen would be good.
