Coral coloration

I notice big difference in the color of some of my coral. It seems to have faded. What can be the causes of this?

Alk 7
CA 380/400
Mag 1350
Nitrates 0
P04 might be up a little haven't tested but I do have a small amount of cyano nothing out of the norm though

I have good growth on the corals just not coloring up.

If not acclimated to them that can do it too.

I put light in acclimation mode but the coral is a holiday Monte bee in the tank for a long time now.

Phosphates can give some issues to some corals if they aren't used to it, try to keep them at .05-.03. Next question would be, do you feed them, how often, and what?

I dont feed them more than 1 time a week if that. When I do I feed red sea a and b. I notice I have a lot of cyano when I feed more than 2ml 1 time a week. I have a 60 gal system I maintain 15 gal weekly water changes using red sea pro salts and I have only 4 fish.
