I rescued a galaxea that was near death some months ago. It was almost just a cool looking rock, but now it's quite beautiful. But, on occasion, it just scrunches up for a few hours, and not always all of it. Just sections. In fact, all my LPS corals occasionally close up. I think it's normal, as long as it's not for a prolonged period of time.

So it's probably nothing to worry about? And i got it as a frag with 3 polyps but now I have 4 with 7 small baby ones around the skeleton. How long does it take for a polyp to reach a large size? I haven't Noticed any growth until now. I guess the glaxea is fully acclimated then?

It's hard to give a growth rate on anything. There are so many factors involved such as trace element levels, feeding, lighting and overall water quality. Just keep up on water changes and keep your levels in check and things will grow.

I got all thoes polyps just in a few days and they are slowly growing but the skeleton is like a pinkish clear? Is that normal? Some of the green faded so I moved him down to the center of the tank now.
