The brown colors could be it regaining it's zooxanthellae algae. Is it possible to post a picture? If you upgraded the lights, it could also be reacting to the change. Is it gaping?

Gaping would be the anemone holding it's mouth open for long periods. This can sometimes be a sign of a stressed animal, as well as drawing itself in for long periods. The change in light can cause it to withdrawl some. I would just give it some time and see what happens. How long have you had the anemone?
