    Have you tested your alkalinity and if so, what's that sitting at?
    Then there are other things to take into consideration eg: flow, lighting(distance from coral), maybe you should post a pic, as that would help alot.

    umm....you keep opening threads about problems with your fish and your corals yet no matter how much advise is given to you, you never end off the thread telling us if the problem was sorted out.
    For instance...does the purple tang still have ich? Is your cauliflower coral open yet?
    Posting your current prameters is a good start, but we need to know what else is going on with your tank..especially since you have recently had a few issues with your livestock.

    That doesn't look like bleaching to me. Looks like the tissue is peeling off the coral skeleton. Whats the flow like in this area?

    More flow will just rip the tissue off at this point. In the beginning more flow would have been better though
