    Hallo guys! I'm a bit worried about my elegance coral. The first day ive had it in my tank it was a darkish color and then after that it was lighter. I noticed this as i was going through my photos.
    I was wondering if it was only this dark because of stress maybe because of the new tank and now a week later. But every photo after the first one is light. Now im wondering if it might be the natural color or is it bleaching?

    The dark color as seen below [​IMG]

    And the light color was taken today [​IMG]

    They are dark when they are stressed and new to a tank. The expand and get a lighter colour as they adapt.
