Torch coral bleaching?

I have had this orange blue tipped Torch coral for about 4 months now but it's slowly losing color! It's growing and getting bigger! It's even splitting into two heads now but what could be causing it's color to fade away? Lighting, placement, not feeding it, flow? I've done some internet research and I've gotten mixed answers! Can anyone help me out with what they feel is the ideal situation and what works best for them when it comes to torch corals?

Can you tell us more about your system? It could be lack of light, it could be too much light, it could be lots of nutrients in the water column...list goes on.

I'll test tomorrow before my water change and put my parameters in the feed! As far as my tank, light, and placement. My tank is a tall 35 hex! 2 feet tall! My light is a nano max spec razor 16000. The placement for Torch is mid left of my tank! Pics included.
