Aiptasia eating file fish are monsters at eating it. I know someone that had a serious aiptasia problem and put the aiptasia eating file fish in and within 2 days it was all gone. How big is your tank? As if it where to be a permanent fish it would need a medium/large tank. But my lfs let me hire the fish and bring him back when he had eaten all the aiptasia.

I'd say it has to do with lighting. The first picture is obviously from the tank those coral came from. The second picture is an unhappy zoa to be sure, almost hard to believe it is the same coral pictured before it. Tie that in with the dead coral skeleton behind it, there is most def a major culprit at hand in your tank.
You said your lighting is an 8 bulb unit? If so, what kind? It might even just be not being acclimated to the new lighting or the fact that your tank has more white bulbs compared to the other who went more actinic/blue wave length.

It is quite possible. Corals can change color when they are under different lighting. Is your lighting t5 or t5ho?

It should say on the light somewhere. There should also be a place on the bulb near the end that will say of it is high output or not when it talks about the bulb.
