Mine shrunk for a few months when I made the change. They didn't move they just didn't open as big at first.

You can always shade them from some of the light using bits of plain paper lying on the top of the tank. Always best to work the light up slowly over weeks.

They should have been acclimated to the new lights along with any other coral you have. Is there any way you can raise them up or shade them somehow? Indirect light may help!

I recently moved to LED also. What you go for?
