It'll take awhile to see noticeable change. Adding things won't help much and give a chance of spreading algae. I wouldn't add a thing and keep maintaining pristine water. More nutrient rich water will also dull or brown corals. You switched out bulbs and it'll help.

Did you see any violet/uv bulbs for your T5's also. Maybe help cover the light spectrum on your corals. And yes about the time game, it took my corals awhile to color up. Stay at it, patience and finding the right elements in your tank is tough at times.
