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.
