What lights are you running? Acros need a very good amount of light and flow.

It's montipora digitata not an acro . Still a good amount of light but not acro light. However knowing the lights would help

ID:	215497 here is a photo of before started getting bleacht from the bottom hope it doesn't dye
Only one thing I didn't mention I had a 45 gall tank before it was a tall one hexagon shape, then I switch to a rectangle shape more short from the top so lights are closer to the sps, I don't think is the lights or there to strong? I'll put some pictures of my tank.
