Duncan Coral Turning White.

Hey guys...

I have 3 colonies of Duncan corals. Each colony about 12-15 heads. Had it about 2 years. The new polyps that are growing underneath the previous heads are all white. I know this is not normal at all. Anything I can do?

Hard to really see, are the polyps above blocking it from getting light? It might also be that it is just growing out, as I've never seen from my colonies them bleach out as they always grow from underneath and out.

Yes the polyps above are covering them. ....

If it is a newly forming head I wouldn't be too worried until it is fully formed. They don't smother every new head, as they always grow under an established one in my experience.
