I would say it's more likely the lighting that can cause corals to change colour it looks healthy and fine though so I would not worry

Thanks Marty,would it more likely be not enough or to much light ,thinking if it is a lighting problem maybe it’s not reaching the bottom enough

I think it looks cool myself corals can often morph when changing to different tanks I got given a red encrusting monti once and after a few months in tank it was infact a rainbow monti was well chuffed
