Purple Tip Bleaching

Have had this purple tip for years. Everything grows fine. Slow but fine.

Overnight I noticed that a few stems were suddenly bleached white. Water and lights are fine.

Then something like this. Just not as bad. Yet.

Uhoh. Noticing even more white bleaching today. Think I may be losing it. Have had it for 10 years. ugh. Waterchange didn't seem to help.

Break off a few tips and put them lower in the tank in varying places, with luck you may be able to save some that way.

What causes it to happen? Something just started killing it over night.

There's obviously some change in your system; one that your purple-tip is reacting to but not your other corals. Could be as simple as a one-time temp spike or some params swang a little to fast (dosing) for it recently.

Your powerheads good and clean? Decreases in flow can be a source of stress, especially in SPS.
