I would check phosphates with a Hanna checker. If you don't have one see if you have a local fish club or lfs that has one.

I have had success keeping it on sand and usually on the side of the aquarium (not center). It stayed closed for a month when i first bought it and then I moved. Put new sand and new water. And then I saw a miracle. It inflated itself and colored up like I had never seen another brain coral do. I can't pinpoint to one exact thing that helped but I thought the coral was a lost cause before I moved to a new home.

But to help you out I would say try different settings on your light such as running it at a lower or higher output than you have now. Also play around with flow and see if lower/higher flow than what you have now will help.

I have moved it around to many places with all different amounts of flow and I can't get it to open up.
