Sorry if this should be in the coral section but im getting random spots of bleaching on a couple of sps still good pe but colour loss in different spots on the corals any ideas what could be causing this? Just checked the vitals

Might it be acropora eating tissue flatworms ?

Can you post some closer pictures of the affected areas of the corals ?

If corals are infected with flatworms they do loose tissue slowly getting lighter and on some areas can show bare skeleton while PE is still good. It can also have a different reason but this is the first thing I would rule out.

This is the best pic I could get. After looking online I think your right with the flat worm so dipping the corals every 3 days

Thank you for the picture but I can not see it really clear but it might indeed some kind of pest, looks like bite marks from tissue eating flatworms. You might take a closer look for their eggs or dip the coral to see if something is coming off.
