That's perfectly normal and is what happens when it gets exposed to air. Give it time, it will come back.

In addition some colorations of coraline respond best to different intensities of light. Give it a little bit of time to adjust to the new water peramiters and lighting. As long as you have good calcium and alkinity the corline will rebound.
