Montipora bleaching

I'm guessing this may be the cause of my new led light and staying that light at 50 and adjusting up. I knew have the light at 20 percent and I am adjusting up from that. All other corals are in good health. The pulsing xenias are actually pulsing under the new life which they never did before.

What is the new light and the old light? What are your parameters and tank size?
It could be the new light, but why would the coral that like less light not be effected when a coral that likes intense lighting bleach out?
Thankfully, it can recover in the shape it is in...things just need to be pristine for recovery.

Definitely the light. That's quite an upgrade in power

Ya, but it was needed. My two headed frog spawn in less than a week and a half is already splitting into three heads, my green start polyps rarely came out are out everyday now. Duncan seems healthier as well as my toadstool. I'll turn the lights all the way down and see what happens
