moving my corls

I have 2 frags in my 20 gallon tank. A mushroom and a zoanthid. I have them located about 3/4 the way up the tank on some rocks because my lighting system is only about 7 watts LED. I am getting ready to change over to a 4 bulb t5 system. Should I move my frags down to the bottom of the tank until they get used to new lighting ?

I usually give mine a week then move them up, zoas can be placed pretty low.
