star polups not opening

The first piece of coral I put in my tank was a green star polup that had a yellow dot in the middle. Did well til one day I noticed not opening then discovered Bristol worm amongst it removed as well as trapped 8 more worms stopped finding in trapp but still not opening or like maybe 4 of like 50 to 60 heads are opening? Any ideas? I moved higher in tank if not open tomarow then maybe lower? I have 105 watt cf lighting in a 28 g nano cube . I have 6 other corals that seem to be fine. Any ideas?

Polyps**

Give the coral a week or two. Sometimes it takes longer for some corals to open up under your lighting. Just let it sit for a couple days, if it doesn't open, move it higher or lower depending on where it sits right now in the tank. Still, give it a couple weeks i guarantee they will open. Those things are practically indestructible.

Also no one knows why but every couple months which yours might be experiencing this they will close up for a week or to. No one knows why. But it ussaly doesnt harm anything

Well whenever they close up for a week or two there are always a few gsp that dont close up. it sounds like that is what is happening to them right now from how you described it
