Softie colors under different lights

I bought an Ultra Eagle Eye Zoa frag yesterday at a Reef Fest. While there, it looked like it had lemon yellow edges. In my own tank, a standard biocube with actinic lights, it just looks lime green on the edges. Is this due to being seen under a different light? Would a metal halide light make it look yellow while my lights only make it look green?

I have fragged coral and put it under 3 different lights and under every light it looks different. If the MH the higher the K the more blue the colors will be so under a 20K things will look more blue than under a 14K.
