Questions about Duncans

Hey guys,
Just wanted to know more about Duncans.
I thought I needed to move the placement of this coral.
Before the coral was more compact and the tenticals were short but skinny.
Here is the pic of the coral before I moved it. Sorry that it is blurry!



After the move the coral is three times the size. Heads everywhere and the tenticals are large but skinny. The heads are expanded almost as though they are looking for light.
Here is a pic of the way it is now.


Is this normal looking?
Should it be closer to the MH's?
Should it receive stronger water flow?
Thanks All

They normally prefer strong lighting with enough flow to keep the tentacles swaying, but not blowing them off their skeleton

Your second picture looks like a happy duncan to me. Hard to tell if it's getting too much flow, but agree with Innovator... the tentacles shouldn't look like they're in a windstorm, but they should have some movement.

Do you feed your Duncan anything. When they get hungery they tend to stretch out a bit. Otherwise like the others said, it looks fine. The lower buds get longer as they try to find a spot with the correct flow and light to suit it.
