Ricordia coral care

Why does one mouth on this look white and one look green? It was fine and I moved it about 2 inches higher into my tank. It's just compact lighting in the biocube so I didn't think it would make that much of a difference. Is it bleaching?

It looks fine to me. Could be a couple of things, but I don't see any harm.

They are just fancy mushrooms, pretty indestructible, but with compact lighting that's really all you will be able to keep. They are pretty and grow and spread like weeds.

Have had it for about 4 months. No growth. And I have lots of corals under my pc lighting. I have t5 6bulb for the 72 bowfront I'm upgrading to next week though Click image for larger version

Move it up in the tank. Things are reaching for light.

Mushrooms and rics will shrivel up to avoid the light long before they will bleach IME, if you see them reaching up they want more light. A happy ric or mushroom will lie flat against the rock or sand
