I have read that when they turn white they are bleaching- too much light?-and in other places that they are stressed. I didn't know this and bought some that I thought were beautiful because they WERE WHITE..... The guy at the store told me that he'd had them for months & they never died or got any worse. I have had them for @ a month and they open & close when I feed them and seem perfectly fine. I think there may be a new one coming up now but I'm not certain. I'm anxious to see what color it will be if it does grow another one (or more hopefully).

I really am new to zoos myself. I posted the ? about the eagle eyes around the same time that you posted this. I just happened to purchase the white ones because I thought they were so pretty....... Wait for someone more knowledgeable than I am but I think they don't need a lot of light. You might try moving them (the rock) away from the light a little & see if they do better.

My green star polyps are at the top of the tank and growing rapidly. They need a lot of water flow and mine love the light. Of course- I don't run my lights as long as you. My light schedule is

Blues on at 1200
Whites on at 1230
Whites off at 730
Blues off at 800
Moon lights and Refugium lights on at 830 off at 600
