Bleaching Acros

What could cause a blue tipped acro to bleach completely, virtually overnight? Lighting hasnt changed, flow hasnt changed, temp hasnt changed.
I have been slowly changing salt from IO to the Oceanic. When I mean slowly it was roughly 20 gallons in a 200 gallon system.

Picture? You listed the big reasons for bleaching, the only issue I've seen related to salt was usually when going with a higher volume. I have recommended going with 5% per time, but when I switched I went with 10% and had no issues.

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.

It's been this past summer, Sept 18th is when you posted in the trades feed back forum.

Can you get a pic? I'm thinking for it to bleach that quickly and completely, it might not be bleaching but RTN.

is it possible that growth in the acro as well as surrounding corals may have affected water flow? or would that not give overnight results?

I"m not expert but I don't think that would cause such an affect overnight.
