Duncan closed up

I got 2 duncans last night, a single and a triple head. The single is happily open, but the triple didn't open today, although it did open last night. Should I be concerned? They are in a lower flow area of the tank.

It might take a day or two to acclimate to the tank. Are they getting plenty of light. I also would put them in a moderate flow area.

I read they like low flow and moderate light....I will give them a couple of days before I start tweaking their location.

Mine never fully opened till I put them in direct light with moderate flow. But each tank set up is different.

Mine like medium flow high light. Also try and feed mysis when they do start to open, they will love it.

I moved them earlier this evening. The single head opened right up. The triple head looks like he's thinking about it...

Mine went from a 3 headed frag to at least 9 that I can count it about 3 months. They grow very quick.
