Bleaching probably from lack of lighting, rather than too much.

Lack of lighting? I have 165watt led right above him running at 100%? So move him up? I thought they liked to be down low and lower flow?

100%? Well if that's the case then it is most def too much lighting. I don't even run my Radions above 70%.

I'd turn your lights down. You're cooking your coral.

I'd want to aim them at around 75%, but I'm not an expert just reflecting what I have been told about LEDs from manufacturers and that they penetrate water extremely well.
The color of the corals in my tank are dulled from how strong they are, as well as phosphate levels. They are going to be turned down again some when I get a chance.

Turn them down slowly? Right? And what should i look for? Say bleaching meaning this or browning meang that? Like more or less light

Yeah, I'd do 5% a week. Hopefully it pulls through. Bleaching can come from too much or too little light. The more light will bleach and kill quite quickly if not properly acclimated to such an intensity.
