Bleaching Candy Cane

So, I've had this candy cane frag with my first set of coral put into my tank. I have had it at every level possible in my tank. Its entire base is heavily bleached now and I am at a loss for what to do for it. All of the other corals in my tank are doing great, lots of growth. About a month ago my softies went toxic on each other and none of them survived. Currently at work, so no access to my current parameters or a picture. Will post upon arriving at home.

Any ideas in the mean time would be great. Thanks.

Here is a pic with my CC in it. Far away, but can see the bleaching. Any ideas?

I've had it up to 8 inches from the light with no help. That is not its real home, just moved in after a week of being under 8 with no improvement. Was thinking it was to much light so it is 9 inches away currently.

I should add that I'm running 2 10k and 2 actinic bulbs in my T5HO.

Most Lps are not high light. I would try it down near the sand bed. I would also try to feed it after the lights go out.

That is just its current placement. It was much further down when this all began. I thought about feeding it after lights out, but it never seems interested. I'll try it again though, never know. Only place it hasn't been is in the sandbed, give it a shot and try feeding again.

there are no 29 watt T5s. They are either 24, or 39. So, three lamps total?
