    Got this green birdsnet frag where the stem has gone white, all the polyps still extended and the tips still green. Didn't change anything in tank something to worry about?

    It has bleached, now this sps can have too much light, move to a lower light area and keep things stable. Are you feeding corals?

    hmm it's only under a set of quad t5's halfway down the tank so about 40 cm down? only feed fuel once a week

    it's still growing been like this for about 2 weeks but seeing new growth still.

    Looks a nutrient problem.
