Help With Duncan And Frogspawn

I recently added some duncans and a Frogspawn coral to my aquarium. For the first 3 weeks the tentacles were long and now they are short. Is this ok? Also my frogspawn won't open all the way up but used to all the time. Nothing is bothering them and my parameters are good. This happened when I switched from Seachem reef Salt to Instant Ocean Reef Crystals since I got 2 buckets free of the I/O/

They look ok to me. Duncan's have different tentacle lengths according to flow from what I've seen. The frogspawn looks fine too

LPS corals vary the length of their deployed polyps depending on flow, lighting and if they are feeding. Poor water quality can also cause them to not fully deploy. They are pretty sensitive to alkalinity levels in my experience. Yours look good.
