Problems with fungia

Two days ago I bought a green fungia. When I got it it was very green, but since putting it in my tank I've noticed its started turning brownish. All of my levels are fine except for phosphate which is above normal and I have a salinity of 1.022. The light that I have equipped right now is the kessil 150w on my 8 gallon innovative marine. Here's what it looks like now: Click image for larger version

Did you do any acclimating to the system at all?
These guys aren't that interested in intense lighting. Shock can easily effect them and browning (as well as bleaching) can be a sign of such.
