Frogspawn Won't Open All The Way

So one day I came home and something had knocked my frogspawn coral to the bottom of the tank and now it won't open up as big as it used to it only opens to a tiny bit every day.
This is how much it opens now...



And the second photo is how much it used to open. Any ideas why it won't open up anymore?

Keeping a frogspawn under those lights can be tough. With one of the bulbs out it would make it that much harder. If one bulb is burnt out, the other is likely used up as well. I'd replace both bulbs and see how the frogspawn does. If needed you can move the frag up closer to the lights.
