Hey just a quick question about live rock. I brought one yesterday put it in my salt water tank. How long does it take for the color to come back?

It’s very similar to live plants in freshwater that have an adjustment period, where they may look duller than normal for a few days to week and then they should brighten up. I would only be concerned if they start to loose all coloration (ex; turn grey/white) and don’t open up or accept any food when our near them when the lights are on.
When you bought it, did you look under it without the commonly found blue lights to enhance their color? I’ve bought a few and everytime they have those blue lights it can make it appear wildly different if you don’t have the same light spectrum they are shown under.
I just purchased it from the store under their lighting. Let me see if it makes a difference since I’m not sure what lighting they are using.
Coolio I’ll give it some time before worrying more, so far it’s getting some color back and so that’s a plus! 💯
