Default needed color & health of this stag

Had this stag for ( I think ) a couple of months, when I got it was a lovely purple/blue color, here it is a few days after I got it

But now it has gone a browny reddish color, here it is now

I prefer the purple and would like advice how to restore it.

Some info -

Ever since I've had it it has never really looked "well', there is almost no PE, and zero growth, other than a little encrusting over the glue at the base. This is in marked contrast to the corals around it, all doing excellent.

It is around 12 inches below water surface, directly under a 150 watt DE halide, 10,000k, the halide is 6 inches above the surface.

Water params are salinity 1.025, Ca 420 - 440, kh around 7.5, PH around 8.0, mg 1350, nitrate undetectable (salifert), phosphate 0.00 to 0.02 (hanna colorimeter). Tank has around 80 x flow, although the stag is in a quietish spot.

Zeo dosing, it's a 75 odd gallon system, doses are 1/2 liter rock, 1 drop start every 2nd day, 2 drops AA daily, 6 drops CV daily, 3 mls pohls potasium daily, and bac 3 drops twice weekly, food 2 drops twice weekly. In addition PIF, iron, pocci glow, and Spur 2 are dosed in accordance with zeoguide recomendations.

I've been wondering about flatworms or similar but no matter how hard I look cannot see anything. Also, it was looking good when I got it, doubt flatworms could increase & bring it down that fast. One other thing, it is not doing it now, but over the first few weeks in the tank it sometimes released quantities of stringy mucus type stuff.
Several other people have got the same coral when it came in, at the same time as me, and have either lost them, or they have gone brown, everyone recognises it as a hard one, mine's doing the best out of all of them that I know of.
Nonetheless, they were a lovely color when they arrived and therefore I'm hoping to find out what it is they need to bring it back to great health.

Hoping someone can help.
