Mushroom coral

We had the pink slime in our small tank and we were told to reduce the light as we had put new bulbs in. Now our mushroom coral is a lighter pink. What can we do to make them happier? So worried.

Color isn't an indication of health so If they are laying flight then I'm thinking they are good

Some are and some aren't. We have learned that when we feed them Planktin (powder form) we turn the power head off. Some have seem to be getting better, though not as fast as one would like. Thank you for your help and reassurance.

You really dont need to feed them. Mine have been going strong for 15 yrs now and have never been target fed.

Our 1st tank is only a 14 gal. Biocube and the mushroom coral have only been in our tank 3months. Nothing like your tanks pic.
