Is this a 2 bulb or 4 bulb fixture? Candy Cane corals dont demand a lot of light but will benefit from more light rather then less light. I have 2 colonies in my frag system, one is up high on a shelf right under a 175w MH
and the other is on the sandbed shaded by other corals. The one up high is beautiful and full the other is nice but no where near as full and colored as the other. It could be your lighting isn't quite strong enough to keep the coral happy. You may want to try raising it in the tank.
