    What are your parameters? It may give us a clue as to what is going on.

    Could be light. Paratemeter. Or a parasite. How about a picture?

    Sps close to it won't cause it to bleach. Corals stinging each other would result in a very noticeable localized white mark

    A bit late, but how is the coral doing? For future reference you can read up on RTN and STN in SPS corals, that may give you an insight as to why your coral is bleaching.
