Mine have always looked brownish-green. Never a real bright green. Interestingly enough, I went through a period of time where my salinity was way too high because of a crappy hydrometer, and when the water conditions were really bad they looked almost fluorescent green. Once I corrected the issue they went back to a happy brown-green. I think that they might just have some variation. Maybe different species or sub species from different locations around the world.

Pc lighting? If so that's on the very low end for corals. They have upgrades which allow for better lighting.. convict has a few BC threads and would be more then happy to help you out I'm sure.

It could be the polyps since you can get different shades/colors of gsp but I bet if you had better lighting you would still see a lot more color out of them.
