Is this STN on my Acro

I've had it for about 3months now from a 1inch frag but it's been losing color but still keeping some pink on the tips just under the polyps. The polyp extension is still pretty good.

Doubtful. Any changes recently? Light change? Bulb fixture? If so when was last time you changed them? What lighting was it under where you bought it? What are your parameters at?

Thanks. Sorry for the late reply... All is getting better with coloration from this piece. It is red where the most light hits it but since I balance everything out better the whole piece is brightening up.
