Biocube 29g zoas fading color.

My zoas color are fading. Can anyone help? I moved them to the shade. And they have grown a whole lot and are fully open. But they look pale. Thanks.

those are button polyp palys not zoa's
med to strong light will keep them bright
weak light makes them fade

this was mine when I had bad lights



this is with new stronger lights before I moved everything to bigger tank
palys look better but they don't have the same wow factor as zoa's
