curing LR and losing bright peach Cora Algea Help!

I bought 2 pieces of LR 2 days ago and I am curing it in a 10 gal tank. Well, I bought it just for the beautiful bright peach cora. Algea and I have changed 50% of the water 2 times in 2 days and my nitrites are still above 1 and amm off the chart. Well, now the peach has turned a bright green. I still have a small amount of peach and I hope to save it please help! How do I save some of it to introduce this color onto my other existing rocks in the ST?

Not sure on how to save the color but you need to get more water changed if the ammonia is still off the chart. I would suggest 50 % test, 50% test, 50 % test and see if that gets the levels back in line a little. HTH

lighting affects the color, different colors grow under different strengths of light.
