Sick Montipora,Kenya and Devils Hand

My purple monti has started bleaching, while my green monti looks fine on the other side of the tank. My kenya and green devils hand are looking bad and they are on opposite sides. It also appears that an acro staghorn is starting to bleach.

I recently had a toadstool just up and die on me and then it all started happening.

PH 7.7
AMM 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate close to 0
Salinity 1.021

Any ideas?

What % are the lights being run at? Were they acclimated to the lighting?

Probably 45-50%. They have been under the lights for months. This just started happening out of the blue and isn't affecting all corals or any fish.

I had a devils hand that no matter where it was placed it wasn't happy ,
so I finally dropped it down in center of sand and amazingly it took off
maybe that's your issue strange but true
