Check your parameters regarding the hair algae for one possible reason if there haven't been any other changes.

Lighting changes can cause it to bleach out too.

I've found that higher than normal nitrates will also cause the coralline to bleach.

There isn't any need to dose your tank unless it is heavily stocked with corals. Keep up with weekly water changes and things will be fine.

Before dosing, you must test for the current values....

Have you seen any asterina stars in your tank? I had them populate pretty quickly in my old tank and they devoured my coralline. I don't see any in your photos, but they cant be ruled out IME.

Well it sounds like you have a nice janitorial crew then. Asterinas are good cleaners.

maybe they are but I can't stand those little buggers , I suck them out with every water-change ,
as for Coraline I think it grows faster on my glass and power heads rather than on my rocks , what little Coraline I got my urchin makes short work of it , never see those annoying stars on the rocks just on the glass
