I can't see the bubbles, but what I can see looks normal. Thats how my zoo's at night or when something is touching them.

They look irritated. Is this how they always are?

mncspradlin...Thank You for the reassurance I don't feel like having these things die being my first coral and all after 8 months my tank should be well established for the easy corals. I will give it another 10 days and see what happens I am doing my first feeding today I will let you know what happens with that.

What kind of lights do you have and where do you have them situated in your tank? Maybe they are to close to the light. If they don't open for you, try moving them down farther and see if that helps.

They are about half way up in my tank and I have 302 watts on my tank right now compact lighting they are sitting about half way up in the tank. Would you suggest me moving them to the bottom or closer to 1/4 way down?
