    I'd think you'd have to feed it, if it lost it's photosynthetic zooxanthellae. Microplankton and probably some good meaty food. I've heard it takes about a month for it to color back up, after whatever bleached it is fixed. If it's getting too much or too little light, you may have to move it to a better location,

    i'd wonder a guess as it actually being "overlight" whats lights are you running? also how long have you had the coral and how did you introduce it to the system?
