    From what i understand is that plate corals like low to moderate light and low flow where have you put this coral in your tank preferably on the sand bed maybe somewhat covered by a ledge

    Is it long or short tentacle

    yrs I suggest you do that vertex lights are very bright and of you not careful with aclimating to leds you can even bleach sps corals

    What's your kH number. High kH and strong light will lead to bleaching. Increase laminar flow over coral, which increases respiration which increases Zooanthelae production which increases pigment formation which will protect coral flesh.
