Most common causes would be diminished lighting and or an increase in nutrients. Mainly NO3 and PO4 I have noticed while playing with nutrient levels our bright pretty sps will start turning green shades first with increased nutrient levels then if levels continue to rise they will start browning out. Lowering levels will have the opposite affect brown to green and then back to out pretty sps 😁.
I realize I'm dumbing this down a bit but its the basic idea. Our sps are florescent because we ride a fine line of starving them and the more abundance of nutrients the more zooxanthellae inside the coral thus turning them green and brown. Hope this helps

Thanks for the tip,
Actually I have been dosing
Po4 and No3 since beginning of December, everything was 000.
My po4 now is 0.03 dosing 5 ml of 3SP solution a week
And NO3 is at 2.00
Dosing 25 ml of Na-No3 solution a week
I was thinking that could be the iron and potassium Iodide I have been dosing in last couple of weeks.. But I could be wrong.. I will stop the dosing and see what happens
