Star Polyps not opening!

I've had my polyps for about 4 days and they haven't opened. When I first got them they open a little but after moving them around a little they haven't opened. Also I added two power heads. What's the deal? Here's a pick.

Star polps are finicky ,when they are moved it can take days for them to reopen.

No no I had them in as soon as I bought them and they were open in MY tank. Here's a pic. I moved them and they closed and they haven't opened since! I have LED lights 36x10k daylight & 12 actinic lamps. I'm not sure what that means but what ever lol

Last time I check my water everything was perfect other than my calcium was a bit high, my magnesium was a little low and my salinity was a little high too.

Sounds like a flow issue. The new spot has either more or less flow than the original placement.

Depends on the colony. Why not just put it back where it was?
