I bought this gorgeous white pulsing xenia tree today and when I put it in my tank it became purple. Any idea why this happens? It was under huge metal halides in the shop and now it is under 3x20W CFs (10,000k, 6500k, and 460nm actinic). If I add a 420nm actinic to further "bluify" the lighting, will its color change at all?

It still looks nice purple, but it looked freakin GORGEOUS when it was white.

its the lighting and probably it being stress a little. i had xenia in my small tank. it was big and light pink when it was stretched out and flowy. when it was shriveled up its a dark purple. its in my large tank now and it stays a pink color at all times. my small tank is a 250w 20k mh. my big tank is 6x54 t5ho
