Is this color right?? Pic

Here's a pic of my open brain. I noticed the other day that the color is a bit more faded than what it use to look like. It actually appears more lighter flourescent than deeper flourescent color that it had.
My water params have been the same and I feed DT's every other day along with cyclopeeze.
The tank has been dosed with zeovit, but I'm not sure that's what's causing the color change.

I does look a bit washed out, though there can be a lot of variation with Trachs. Might be time to change your lights or something, if all your other params come back good.
Reaching up and reaching out and reaching for the random, or whatever will bewilder me.

If you use Zeovit, as you know, the nutrients will be very low and the zooxanthellae populations will be ler also , thatīs why coralsl become lighter, and thatīs what I think itīs suffering your trachy.

May be now you should have to feed it carefully.
