My Pink Hystix isn't particularly pink! So i thought it could be that;
a) He's not happy? - he grows and polyps like mad so I dont think so.
Maybe he just not a very pink coral?
c) The ones I see on the net are photoshopped?

Mine is very pink, with white tips on the new growth, I do have it towards the centre of the tank where it gets most light. (400w reeflux)

The coral has changed a lot since that pic. It went through RTN and so I had to frag it so I now have lots of frags that combined have probably grown to the same size as the original colony. The frags are in different parts of the tank. The best bit is getting quite pink now and has an orange plating monti growing right next to it and they look great. It is near the top of the tank with quite a bit of flow. My lights are 10k 250s. I'm not sure if it is the pinkest because of where it is or because it's the piece that hasn't been moved for ages.
I dont use phosphate removers, just algae in the sump. On Salfert tests it is undetectable. The photo above shows a lot of algae but most of that has gone now. Next test kit I get I'll try a DD test kit.
I hope I'll it to go a nice bright pink, maybe with time it will.
