Most corals require several days to settle in to their new home. If tissue or polyp expansion is not taking place now, give it a few more days. However, if bleeching or tissue ression (exposing the skeleton) or a slimy film cover the coral, it is not a good sign. Post some pics when you can...

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

As lando noted, it still might just be adjusting. Mine didn't *really* expand daily - don't know if that was normal or not. Somedays it would really puff up, others... not so much. I always just equated it to whether or not it was in a good mood or not!

The picture I posted might not really be representative of how "puffy" they normally get. If I remember right, it was exceptionally "happy" that day and that picture was taken shortly before it decided to move a bit. They seem to get enormous just before they move.
