Leather does not look good

This leather has been in the tank about 6 weeks now. It has always opened up fully during the day and looked good. But yesterday it started getting a gray color in its veins. Now today some of the fleshy area is gray also. Parameters are good, all other corals look fine.

Last weekend I dosed with Trace elements, Iodine, and Tech M for the first time. I followed the instructions and underdosed. Also I changed the compact flourscent bulbs last weekend. So it is getting more light then it used to.

So any advice is welcome.

Will it kill it or is best to leave it alone and it will recover?

Thanks for the quick response
