Same answer as on the other thread. Acclimation. They just go manhandled. Just give it time. If there are some that are open, that's a good sign. If they were all closed for a couple days, then of be worried.

Yeah, I bought some star polyps a few weeks ago and it took them a few days, maybe a week to all open. Now they open about an hour before my timer turns the tank lights on.

It's all about routine I guess.

I had a small frag of them in my tank. When I first got them they did not open up for 3 weeks. Now they r growing. Don't count them out. Just put them in a spot and they will be ok. Gsp r very hearty and very hard to kill.

mine took almost a week to open up. Surprisingly they took home underneath a rock and seem to be doing fine in the shade.
