What lighting are you using? They look to be browning out a bit (usually insufficient lighting or a nutrient issue), but the BN is showing growth

Crank up the blues a bit bill. I'm sure you'll see some better color come out.

No turn those blues up a bit and you'll get better coloration.

Bribo, do the blues help in growth of the corals? I know they make them look better, I was just wondering.

It's actually the other way around, the whites will fuel the algae growth.
