It may just be "morphing" so to say.

Zack801 is correct, if you are trying for a low nutrient system your alk should not be above 9.0. If its not low nutrient, you are fine, as long as your test kit is correct

Bleaching is usually due to too much light or not enough nutrients

Browning is usually not enough light or too much nutrients

Kessil 360

It’s not bleaching or browning. It has changed from a green to a purple color.

Alk is at 12.6dkh? That is pretty high and doesn't leave a lot of room for error. I think with lower nutrient system you'd want to keep alk a bit lower to keep from potentially burning up your sps.

Too much light?

Too high or low nutrients? Could you explain just a little bit?

Thanks for the reply.

Just wondering what causes montis to lose their color?

I have a decent size Green Monti that has changed from green to an almost purple.

Also the grafted Monti I got from you has gone from a red with green to almost an orange with no green.

Any ideas?

I'm running the Red Sea program and have everything setup to dose automatically with the APEX DOS pumps.

Here are my parameters

Alk 12.6
Calcium 420
Magnesium 1400
Nitrates 5
Phosphates .01
