If you upgraded to these lights from something much weaker or didn't acclimate them to the much stronger lights you can very easily burn your corals to death.

They started turning brown and people started saying it wasn't enough light so I turned them up and that made other stuff dye

And you turned them up quickly rather than slowly?
