Do you have anything that will nip at them? Any corals that will be to close to sting them? These would be next issues that could be the problem.

I agree check the enviornment around them and make sure they are not being distressed.

nope, nothing's touching them.

i have 96watt pc on a 15 gallon tall. could that be too intense for them? they were fine for the first few weeks and i didn't notice any bleaching or anything.
