What's wrong with my sunset hygro

Hi All,

The plant is growing very well in my aquarium but what parameters do I need it to get it to be bright pink? It was before when I received it.

i'm guessing the light isn't high enough, it's semi high light tank,
with co2 injection and ei dosing fertz, and everything is growing well in there and small signs of gda on the glass, which the red ramshorn snails and bn plecos clean off daily, otherwise a pretty healthy tank.

oh the holes are from my bn plecos

Low nitrates will pull out the pink, its walking on a very fine line with high light though. Mine just has a touch of pink, I cannot get it bright pink without the other plants suffering.
