the white isn't always bleaching. It could also be growing. I have an Elkhorn that has white tips daily, but it goes away quickly. most fast growing corals will do this.

correct. caps or plates like montipora will usually have white rims while they grow however in this case i dont remember the original poster saying they had any SPS. you do bring up a good point though
