It might take a couple days for it to adapt to the water and lighting. Its a nice looking coral, hope it does well. Its not in too much light is it? I have a green one that my clowns host instead of my BTA.

My open brain did similar acts when I fist got it. It adjusted after a couple weeks. Now when it closes up I know to find the reason. Lately the conch has been moving it around and it pointed out a need for a water change once as well.
