It looks like it's starting to bleach. What exactly are your water parameters....in real numbers, not just "my paramets are good". What kind of lighting do you have?

Nitrate is on the high side. I would do a bunch of water changes to get that down. What size tank is this? A 2 bulb fixture is not much light, especially if 1 of the bulbs is an actinic (blue).

It's a 55g tank , 48" long I just ordered Metal Halide 20000k fixture, you think that will fix it?
