White Torch bleached?

Hey I was just at my LFS and saw a torch coral that was almost white. I thought they werent usually white. Is it bleached? Or could this be a color of torch I have never seen before? I was very interested in it (although my tank isnt ready for coral quite yet), and it looked healthy to me I was just wondering if you guys have ever heard of a torch being white.

If it`s white then it is bleached. It should have this look

I know what you mean... the bleached/white sebae anemones also look really beautiful. Until you realize they're on their death bed.

Mike, I'm insanely jealous of your corals.
