Need advice on my lobo.

I bought this lobo bleached like this from the Lfs. I have had it in my tank for 2.5 wks now. It doesn't seem to be getting its color back yet. It is in a 29g biocube with the stock 36w actinic and white bulbs and a 21x1w led fixture. It sits on the sand bed at the front of the tank under the 36w 10k white bulb. It eats really well. It puts feeder tentacles out every night and swells up nicely. My params are: amm 0, nitrites 0, nitrates 5, phosphates .25, ph 8.2, calcium 410, alkalinity 11 dkh, and salinity 1.025.

I feed it mysis and brine shrimp and occasionally soak the food in selcon. What should I do to help it color up? I have a nice canopy in the rock work it can sit under if it needs less light. Any help would greatly appreciated. Thanks

Mike Hayes

It needs more light. Maybe get a blue or purple if available for your fixture.
