No, not maybe. Definitely. If sps is dead, all color will leave it and it will be nothing but pure white skeleton. A good example would be this pic-



The tops are now dead and the bottoms have a little life left in them.

Lighting also plays a bit part here. What kind of lighting did they come from and what lighting do you have now? The coral may have looked a lot more colorful in the other guy's tank because his lighting was different.

he has two LEDs and i have quad T5HO. but the color of the sps hasn't change much as far as the naked eye visual inspection goes. this is the frag rack from the seller and i got the first one from the right.

You could just sign up for a photobucket account. It's free and there's no quota. then you just paste the URL to the pic in the "insert image" box.

Look bleached, but you can see the polyps and tissue at the tips.
