I would bet that Kevin nailed it right on the head.. I have heard many stories of frags falling and just barely touching ricordia and completely RTN'd.. It could be possible that one day the Ricordia opened up more than it was normally and just barely touched it... Even if its not what happened thats what i would blame it on as it seems to be the only logical thing

Bleaching is the coral expelling it's symbiotic algae
so bleaching is reversible? or does bleaching lead to RTN?

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

Yes, bleaching can be reversed, although the majority of the time a bleached coral will die. You have to find the cause of the bleaching and fix it, then the coral will recover.

I have a few sps in my tank right now that had localized bleaching due to a new halides with some serious UV punch, now that there is a 1/8th inch glass shield in place they are recovering.
