Just give it time. Observe the coral each day. If it starts to bleach you probably need to turn the lights down more. Corals can take a while to react. Also make sure it isn't getting too much flow. Frogspawns don't like to be blown around. Just a gentile breeze.

I have a hammer coral in my tank. For the longest time, it just never took off. When I got it there were 4 heads. It stayed that way for well over a year. Never really opened up and extended like I had always seen other members do. This was all under my Ecotech Radions. After so long, I picked up some new coral and moved the new guys to where the hammer was and placed the hammer into the sandbed. The next day, full extension of the entire coral. In the last several months, the number of heads have doubled with more on the way. Give it some time under the lowered intensity of the lights, I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't see an improvement in a week.

It is the same. The waiting game continues. Wish this stuff would grow!
