Blue and Green Bubble coral question?

Can these colored bubble corals change colors depending on lighting? I saw what was listed as a blue bubble coral at the lfs today and this coral had no blue coloration in it. I was wondering if it was misslabled or if it is jsut somehting to do with lighting.


Most that I see are pink or beige.

Lighting can make a difference.. Brighter lights can bleach it out over time, water quality and different types of lighting also makes a difference.
My kenya trees look different under my PC compared to my VHO. They probably were using some actinic lighting to give the corals a nicer look.
I have never seen a Blue Bubble... I have seen Pearl, Green and a off white/gray..

I have never seen blue either. Green, white, and pink are the common ones

Interesting. Well I saw a bubble listed as blue in a store called Absolutley Fish in Clifton NJ. Great store. They had it labled that way but to me it looked like an average pink bubble coral under attnic lighting.
