Why do fathead dendros lose tentacle color?

When I add fathead dendros to my tank they initially have bright yellow tentacles, but in a week or so they fade to a much paler yellow. Then inner orange part seems less affected. This has happened two separate times.

Any ideas why this is? They are fed regularly, and multiply quickly. They are in fairly bright light, fwiw.

I was recently in a coldwater FB group, and someone was describing a similar phenomenon in an NPS red anemone.
