Bleaching corals

I have a few new LPS corals in my tank that were doing great but now the one is bleaching out and the other seems a bit deflated. Is it possible that my lighting isn't strong enough for them? My Zoas in the tank are growing like mad. Would changing my lighting schedule on my Radions help?

Thanks

Did you acclimate them to the lighting on your system or toss them in at full blast? What settings are your radions set to?

No i didnt run them through the acclimation setting. They were doing great for 3 weeks. I run a program that is "Jon's" radion setting with a peak at 100% for about an hour or so. I am planning on changing that today to see if they will come around

Oh, jon's graph. Well blasting new coral at 100% will cause issues for sure. I don't even run my radions at more than 65% when at peak.
