Please go into more detail. Whats the size of tank, whats the wattage of the bulb. What type of bulb is it.

For what its worth its next to impossible to overlight your tank. From the sounds of it it sounds like you went from to little light to just enough to bring out the color of your fish as well as permit potental future addition of corals.
