Clear/transparent frogspawn?

Saw it at my lfs. Has anyone seeing it before with this kind of coloration?

Bleaching is usually characterized by the white skeletal structure right? But this one is clear to the point where I can see through it. Furthermore its tentacles are fully extended. It doesn't look unhealthy for me at all, just clear

this is not the best picture, but you can clearly see the transparency.

I havent seen that color before but hammers do come in different shades. I have a mint green one that looks different from the regular greens.

It could possibly related to stress. My hammer was bright purple but I moved it and it fell. After a day with its polyps in the sand I found it and pulled it out. That was 2 months ago and it still is drab in color.

Just a guess, but my guess would be insufficient light. I have a bunch of green hairy mushrooms. One of my corals grew so large it blocked their light source for several weeks. They then turned clear, but since I moved them I slowly see their color coming back.
