Montiporia sick

Have a green and a red montiporia coral. And have noticed the green one of late getting white around the edges and some blackening of the tips of the montiporia. Does anyone know whats happening here.

Are my lights to bright or something.

See the bit at the back that looks slightly purple. That's bleached a good bit though.

And should I turn my light intensity down donyou think?

It almost looks like it is losing flesh. Have you seen any bare spots appearing at the base of it? If so it could be stn.

Whats stn. Strontium. And nothing at the base just at the edges. And this is how green it was at the start.

Stn is slow tissue necrosis where flesh just kinda starts falling off. However, judging by the second picture it looks like the monti is just bleaching in the first picture. Maybe dial the lights back some.
