Coral not opening

I recently bought a Zoa and it's been a couple days now and it hasn't opened. I have plenty of water movement and my salinity is between 1.025-1.026
What's going on?

What are the other parameters in the tank? What kind of lighting is on your system?

Params are definitely needed and what type of lights you have before anyone can help you..

I know you said you have LEDS but that could mean you have marines land single brights which won't grow anything, or you could have radions..

Sadly, they just don't have the power to grow corals. My lfs thought so too, I tried to tell them otherwise, and then corals that grew for years in the store are dead and gone.

Unfortunately te phrase "cheap lighting for corals" doesn't really exist. Having said that, what is your budget? What size tank again?
