Also, do you have any urchins in your tank? They will also strip coraline algae from the rocks. Just a thought.

your light output most of the time is based on the size of your ballest. For a tank that small, you should upgrade to NO lights and you will have a tremendous amt of growth...AND to improve the LR colors even more, add calcium too.. Im like you I didnt realize the importance of lighting.
Atari is right, the bulb(s) need to be changed. I had my NO flor lights for a year and my rock started fading too...I upgraded to VHO lighting and now I have purples all over the place!! But it does take time too!!
