I ran into the same problem with some corals they were losing color, I was talking to some one about it and they suggested adding Seachem Reef Plus which is trace elements. I dont like adding anything to my tank that I cant test for but I thought i would give it a try. I have been adding it for about 2 weeks now and the color seems to be starting to come back.

I just find it hard to believe that the lights are causing the discoloration. Check you water parameters since something could be off and thus causing them to be pale/brown. If that's not it, I'm out of guesses for the cause.

Any questions? Feel free to PM me.

I'll try the trace elements. The last time I used those it caused in a nasty cyan outbreak. Like I said all parameters are good.
