Acro Fading to brown

Hello, I got a purple tip about a month ago now and its doing really well as far as polyp extension and growth even, however the whole thing is fading to brown ever so slowly. I have 2 48" PC lights that are about to be swapped with MH that should ship today (I hope) My question is if the zoozanth will morph back to the brighter color in the presence of much more intese light or if they will stay brown now that its changing.

Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women.

-105G SPS Reef with 30G Sump/Fuge Combo
-30G LTAnemonarium with mated porcelain crabs, 10 sexy shrimp, and 2 pink skunks all tied into the other 135G in my system.

It may or may not change back, it may change to a totally different color, ynk what they are gonna do, more than likely it will change to a brighter color. Make sure when you add the MH, you acclimate the corals to the more intense lighting or you could end up with some serious bleaching and death on your hands.
