I have always found the green goes away from these kinds of coral and they turn all pink in high light.

I've always noticed the opposite ;Pompus
I have heard others say that as well. Many a debate even on R2R about this. Maybe there is more to it than light intensity, like spectrum. Maybe nutrient levels or anything that might increase or decrease the concentration of zooxanthellae cells. Red planet seems perfect for a grow out contest.
