Coral bleaching: (n.) Coral bleaching occurs when its symbiotic zooxanthellae either die or are expelled from the coral. The zooxanthellae often give corals their color, so without these protozoans, the corals look white. Coral bleaching is a stress response to disease or improper aquarium conditions.
