    About a week ago I purchased a heteractis crispa form my LFS.
    he came to me in a bleached state but this afternoon I noticed his tentacles turning pink, is this a sign he is regaining his zooxanthellae?

    Probably. Under sufficient lighting/ good conditions it is surprising just how quickly they do colour up.
