Montipora help!

Hey guys when i bought this red montipora is was a darker red and all of the little polyps were out, but now it looks to be turning a lighter red color, but all of the polyps are still out... Any help? Is this good or bad?

This is it before, and this is it now

It looks like its bleaching to me, try moving it and give it a few days and move it again if it doesn't improve. How's everything else in the tank looking?

Hmmmmm, my green monti is up top in my tank under 6-t5 and it looks good and has been growing like a weed. It doesn't have that lush smooth look like your red in the first pic it has the nobby look like the second pic but it's still bright green and I see new polyps popping up daily. Has yours grown at all? Are all polyps open?
