OKKKKKKKKKKK so. I was having issues with my silly little bulldozer of a pencil urchin knocking down my pretty litte frags of SPS (green slimer, 2 pieaces of digitatus)

So i built a frag shel about 8-10 inches below my light and stuck them up there....

yeah today they are eather bleached or they are dead :( did i totally toast them i assume?

i didnt move them up too high so i figured i didnt need to do the gradual move

:(

if they aren't gone yet they are close to it
you can try shading them and hope for the best
as i have been told putting a bleached coral under bright light is like putting an Eskimo on the beach with no sun block

well..........the trials and tribulations of keeping a reef tank i suppose.
Try mixing some amino acid or vitamin C with your feeding maybe 2 times a week and if they are not dead color should improve. IMO pencil urchin do have there place in a reef tank very good with hair algae, but a reef tank with small frags or coral attached to rock rubble is no good for the over all health of the coral if it keeps getting knocked over.
