Is this brown coloration an issue for this coral?

I have two colonies that vary in shade from turquoise thru blue to purple. leading growth edges are a shade of green. I don't see browning in your picture at least it doesn't come across as brown. What kind of light how intense how much flow? I keep in less direct light ( off to side of LED fixture) part shade . They get less colorful in higher light.

This colony is pretty close to the Kessil 350, so I bet it is too much light causing the brown color. Flow is pretty moderate in that area.

Thank you
