I got myself a frag if this a while back. But can’t find any good info on it. I had mine in my frag tank with low to medium light with low ish flow.
The color went from pink to a darker pink/brown maybe. But the neon yellow tips disappeared. Not sure if I just caught it on a day where they were bothered.
I moved it to my main display now. Placed it at bottom of tank off center, put lights on a 3 weeks acclimation starting at 60%.

picture attached was taken a while back. The full color is pretty much as dark as the base but no yellow tips
Any advice ??

Nutrient levels?
If your nitrates and phos is too low it can cause this
i haven't tested them lately. But I don't think they are too low, I do feed often, I have chaeto as well.
I will get tested soon and will see

Looking at the corals around and the frag, i would say you have a nutrient issue....nitrates and phosphates are elevated...see algea in the background too.
