What kind of lights do you have and which corals are browning? Also, what is the age of the lights?

I run 175w 10K MH. The bulb is less than 6 months old. This is mounted 10" above a 20G tank. I was thinking of adding a 55w
Actinic PC.

It's probably not so much browning as reflecting differently different type of light.

Most corals shine under Actinic, and some don't really show a lot of colors under 10K light. So adding Actinic will definately help both aesthetically and as supplement of light spectrum.

P.S. Corals are really pretty under just actinics (i.e. when main light goes off in the evening :) ).
