I have duncan in a tank with t5 lights and in a tank with MH lights both are doing fine. I do know the flow has a lot to do with them being happy. One really likes to have stronger flow than the other.

Also... corals will shift their colors as they acclimate themselves to their new home. I've never had a coral that I've purchased stay the same exact color from when I've purchased it, to 3-4 months after it's been in my tank.

I doubt you're cooking it, and if it's fully opened sounds like the flow is OK.
