Blue Snowflake Polyp

Need some advice on this coral. Currently I have it close to the sand bed sitting on a piece of my live rock in a 10g nano. Now it is just a frag but it seems it isn't opening up as much as it was. Would it be a good idea to move it further up the rock scape and closer to the light?

Mine likes a lot of flow and I have it with high light. But that is in my tank.

Haha...mine still hasn't open back up. Maybe try moving it mid way down this time and see what happens.

Have you checked your alkalinity? Mine honestly don't care where they're. And they're literally in all types of flow and light.

Thanks everyone. I have tried moving them down now instead of so close to the light. They are still getting flow so that shouldn't be a problem. I am just worried that the frag was so small that they may not make it. Even when they were open the the one time they were so hard to see.

No I haven't. Wish I had seen this before I left the LFS, would have picked up a Alk test while I was there.

Mine was the same. It had about 5-10 polyps on and you couldn't really see them and now about 3 months later it has maybe 200 polyps. It grows fast

Hopefully this is what will happen. I love the way they look and hope it is ok. My others are doing great so far. And I never knew that candy canes open up even more when the lights are out and show their tentacles. I was shocked lol.
