Spaghetti leather lost green color

My leathers polyps are out during day and closes at night like a good coral but she use to have a nice green tint and now she is just whitish. Does she need more light? Last time I raised her in tank she wouldn't talk to me for 2 days...till I put her back where she was, then she opened wide.

I put in Kent's phosphate sponge, she had shriveled up with no polyp extension, and she woke right up. Still need to order phosphate kit but Kent's seems to have brought polyps out. Now if only she could get color back.
