how much light does a white bubble coral need?

I have a 265 gallon tank (24"T x 30" D x 8' L) with 1350 URI VHO (5 tubes actintic white, and 4 tubes actinitic blue) with 520 watts of CF smart tubes 1/2 10K and 1/1 actintic blue. Tubes are new to relatively new. I have 3 bubble corals, 1 green pearl, 1 green regular, and 1 white regular. The greens are doing quite well. The white however is not, and I suspect that it may be receiving too much light. What is the lighting requirement for the white bubble?

i am not sure about light requirements but you could just move it lower or in a slightly shaded area and see what happens....

The bubble corals do like calm water motion so if the current is really blowing it it will not open as much.
