How are other SPS corals doing in your system ? Do they show good growth and polyp expansion ?

Is it possible for your to post a full tank shot and also a good picture of your sump ? Maybe I can see anything ?

I have no experience with the salt you use, have you a chance to use a different salt doing three water changes within the next 10 days each 15 – 20% ?

I can not see anything unusual in the pictures, thank you for posting them. From the pictures it looks like corals which are not directly under the lighting fixture do look much better, is this really the case ?

I can not really help you with LED as have no experience with them I was just thinking that there might be a issue with the spectrum or so as it looks like corals which are not placed directly under them are doing better.

You can try to place one of the affected corals close to another which is doing fine. If the light spectrum is a issue the corals should start to improve slowly.

It is a really nice coral but it does need a stable nutrient poor environment with a balanced lighting spectrum to keep coloration.

The green color it has at the moment can often be observed when nutrients are elevated, to much elements are added to the system or if the lighting spectrum is not correct. The coral does also need intensive light.

I think that is not the reason if your test result is really correct. My guess is the light or the spectrum of it if there are no other sources of iron in the system.

Please also keep in mind that the system is still very young and you have not used live rock.
