Its about 4" from the top now - It's on the highest rock I have in the tank to be honest. I actually added a rock to lift it up when I added it.

I was thinking if it was bleaching it was getting too MUCH light!

As far as flow, it gets indirect flow about 3" away from a Koralia 750 and direct flow from the other side of the tank 20" away from the other 750.

The polyps that are extended and the birdsnest, within inches, are constantly blowing around.

Is it bleaching out on the back side where the lights don't shine on it also I have read that the food coral frenzy is the best to feed so you can try that food to see if it will help

I've been feeding phyto feast lately and all corals other than that look great. It actually directly under the light so it's equally lit, the front half is bleached.

I have a elkhorn that has partly bleached. I think it is at war with the soft corals next to it. It improves when I change my carbon filter out.

Pics are here for acro and new additions. Where the light is reflecting brightly on acro is where it is bleached.
